LOS ANGELES -- (KTLA) -- Reputed drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman will be extradited to the United States, the Mexican ministry of foreign relations announced Friday.

The United States has been preparing for Guzman’s transfer for months and has been hammering out the security details, American officials said two weeks ago when a judge in Mexico approved the transfer.

It’s not immediately clear when Guzman will be turned over to U.S. custody.

Further updates are expected today.
