    MEXICO CITY: A Mexican judge has issued an order to extradite fugitive drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States — if he is recaptured after his jailbreak, authorities said Thursday. The federal judge in Mexico City accepted a petition made by the attorney general’s office on Wednesday, almost three weeks after Guzman broke out of a maximum-security prison by slipping down a tunnel on July 11. President Enrique Pena Nieto’s decision to try Guzman in Mexico instead of immediately extraditing him to the United States last year has come under scrutiny since his latest escape. Guzman had already fooled the authorities in 2001 when he busted out of another maximum-security penitentiary.
