'El Chapo' Guzman's wife breaks her silence: 'I fear for his life'

- The wife of imprisoned Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" (Shorty) Guzman has broken her silence and spoken out in defense of her husband in an exclusive interview with Telemundo, saying she fears for his life and that he is being denied his basic human rights.

The U.S. Spanish-language broadcaster uploaded some clips of an interview with Emma Coronel Aispuro that the network will broadcast in full on Sunday.

"I fear for his life," said the wife of the Sinaloa drug cartel chief, who escaped from the Altiplano I maximum-security prison outside Mexico City in July 2015 but was recaptured in January and returned to the same penitentiary.

Coronel, who married Guzman in 2007, complained about her husband's prison conditions, maintained that his health was suffering and said she would hold the Mexican government responsible for whatever happens to him.
