CHICAGO (AP) - Escaped again. Authorities in Mexico continue their all-out manhunt for drug lord, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, who officials say escaped Saturday from a maximum security prison.

Officials say an opening in the shower area of his cell opened up to a one-mile tunnel. Guzman had first escaped from prison in 2001, with the help of prison guards, and he wasn't captured until last year in February.

Meanwhile, in a federal court in New Hampshire today, Guzman's cousin - Jesus Gutierrez-Guzman - is scheduled to be sentenced for his role in the drug cartel.
