  Elite troops patrol after failed arrest of son of drug lord 'El Chapo' Mexico has dispatched over 400 elite troops to patrol the northern city of Culiacan after multiple people were killed during a failed attempt to arrest the son of drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. The operation follows heavily armed members of the notorious Sinaloa cartel launching a violent attack on Mexican authorities who detained Ovidio Guzman last week.

Security forces dressed in tactical gear and wielding large guns gesture for Guzman and the others to come through the door of a white building.

In the next shot, Guzman is back on his feet and on the phone, appearing to give orders to stand down.

"Stop everything, stop everything, I have already surrendered," he says. "Tell them to stop... I don't want there to be chaos, please!"

Wednesday morning's press conference did not include footage of the moment Guzman went free, but officials did show video of National Guard members being attacked throughout the city.

"And when you see those things, what happened, is when you better understand why the operation was ordered to stop," Lopez Obrador said after the video ended.
