Will El Chapo son's arrest slow export of drugs to US? Next steps crucial, experts say

MEXICO CITY ― The arrest of Ovidio Guzmán, the son of former Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzmán, is an important step for the Mexican government, experts say, but it will likely have little effect on the flow of illegal drugs, particularly fentanyl, across the border.
