Mexico is offering a reward of 60 million pesos ($3.8m) for the capture of the country’s most-wanted drug lord, who escaped from a top security prison.

A huge manhunt is underway for Joaquin Guzman, who got out of his cell on Saturday through a 1.5km-long tunnel.

Interior Minister Miguel Angel Osorio Chong said officials at the prison must have helped his escape.

Three senior prison officials, including the director of the Altiplano jail, have been dismissed.

It has emerged that Guzman fled despite wearing a monitoring bracelet and being subject to 24-hour surveillance.

“There will be no rest for this criminal,” said Mr Osorio Chong,

On Monday, Mr Osorio Chong visited the prison and the nearby area for the first time since Guzman’s escape.
