La Razon de Mexico, July 13

"He left by this hole," reads the front page of La Razon de Mexico's Monday edition, a day after Mexican drug lord Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzman's escaped for the second time from a ­maximum security prison.

Guzman — who already escaped from another Mexican maximum security prison in 2001, with the help of prison guards — had been incarcerated for the last 18 months in the Altiplano federal facility, in the Santa Juana neighborhood of Almoloya de Juárez, in the State of Mexico Altiplano.

According to the Mexican daily, the head of the Sinaloa cartel had only been in prison for four months when he began plotting his underground getaway; on Sunday, Guzman broke out of the facility through a hole dug in his shower area that led to a mile-long tunnel.
