Mexico drug lord loses bid to block extradition

Associated Press | June 17th, 2014

Rafael Caro QuinteroA Mexican judge has denied a fugitive drug lord an injunction against any possible extradition to the United States, where he is wanted in the killing of a Drug Enforcement Administration agent, judicial authorities said Tuesday.

The Federal Judicial Council said in a brief statement that the judge rejected Rafael Caro Quintero’s petition. It gave no other details.

The petition was filed by Caro Quintero’s lawyers on his behalf.
