Colombia's Most Wanted Drug Lord Captured in Raid

Colombia's security personnel escort Colombia's most wanted drug lord, Dairo Antonio Usuga, known as Otoniel, Saturday, October 23.

Otoniel, 50, was captured during operation Osiris in a rural area of Colombia's Uraba region, located in Antioquia province. He is accused of sending dozens of shipments of cocaine to the United States.

President Ivan Duque said Otoniel is also accused of killing police officers, recruiting minors and sexually abusing children among other crimes.

One police officer died during the operation, Duque said.

Otoniel rose to become the leader of the drug trafficking group the Clan del Golfo, or Gulf Clan, following stints as a left-wing guerrilla and later as a paramilitary.
