Mexico wants to question actress Kate del Castillo about El Chapo interview

Mexican authorities say they want to talk to actress Kate del Castillo, who arranged Sean Penn’s controversial interview with drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

A federal official confirmed that investigators have formally asked del Castillo to meet them about her and Penn’s encounter with Guzman.

The official said del Castillo is considered a witness and is not accused of any crime.

Guzman is the Sinaloa drug cartel chief who was captured earlier this month in Los Mochis, Sinaloa state, six months after escaping from a maximum-security prison.

Penn’s article about Guzman was published by Rolling Stone a day after his capture.
