Colombia Captures Drug-Trafficking Kingpin ‘Otoniel’ Wanted by U.S.

BOGOTA, Colombia—Colombia mentioned it has arrested its most-wished drug-trafficking kingpin, the chief of a rural militia of extra than one,000 fighters who American prosecutors say oversaw a valuable cocaine-smuggling community to the U.S.

Right after many years of applying armed forces may well versus the Gulf Clan in functions that have bundled aerial bombardments, Colombia introduced Saturday the arrest of the group’s commander, Dairo Antonio Úsuga, alias Otoniel. President Iván Duque likened the tumble of Mr. Úsuga to the 1993 procedure in which Colombian police killed Pablo Escobar, the Medellín cartel manager.
