One of the sons of imprisoned drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been kidnapped by gunman from a Mexican beach resort along with five other men.
Seven armed assailants burst into an upmarket restaurant in the resort in Puerto Vallarta on Monday with “long guns” and violently took the men who had been dining in a large group.
Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar, the 29-year-old son of Guzman, has been confirmed by authorities as one of the abducted men.
It was thought that another of Guzman’s sons, Ivan Archivaldo Guzman, may have been among the group of men who were marched out of the restaurant. Authorities have identified four of the six men who were taken, but have not commented on whether Ivan could be one of the two people yet to be identified.
