A Mexican judge has rejected an appeal by drugs lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman against his extradition to the US.
The foreign ministry approved the extradition in May but Guzman’s lawyers have been fighting the decision in a district court.
They say they will now take the case to a higher court.
The head of the Sinaloa Drug Cartel was recaptured in January after escaping for a second time from a maximum security prison.
