Sinaloa princes: El Chapo’s sons embrace the cartel

Collectively known as Los Chapitos, or “the little Chapos,” the four sons of Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin El Chapo Guzman, were once mocked by adversaries as entitled princelings more concerned with flashing their wealth on Instagram than the grubby work of moving tons of cocaine into the United States. Yet the brothers have resuscitated a drug empire left teetering after their father was locked behind U.S. bars and diversified the business by embracing a new line of synthetic drugs. - REUTERS
