Mexico says it is willing to extradite Joaquin ''El Chapo'' Guzman, one of the most wanted drug traffickers in the world, to the US.

The office of the attorney-general said extradition proceedings for the head of the Sinaloa drug cartel would start immediately.

Meanwhile Guzman's lawyers have already filed motions challenging the request.
