MEXICO CITY (AP) — The head of the powerful, international Sinaloa Cartel, who has twice escaped from Mexican prisons, is back in custody again. Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was captured by Mexican Marines after a shootout at the home in Los Mochis, a seaside city in Guzman's home state of Sinaloa. Officials say Guzman had apparently been planning a movie about himself. Calls have already begun to extradite him to the United States.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North and South Korea have slid back into a Cold War-like standoff after Pyongyang's claims of a hydrogen bomb test. South Korea responded with blasts of harsh propaganda from giant green speakers aimed across the world's most dangerous border. North Korea's subsequent warning of war is considered a typical response that's indicative of the real fury that any criticism of Pyongyang brings. Many outside governments are skeptical of the test itself.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Spokeswoman Alvina Alston says the family of former NBA star Lamar Odom is proud of what's termed his "miraculous and continued improvement" but isn't providing details of his condition following his transfer to a private facility. The move comes three months after he was found unconscious and in critical condition at a Nevada brothel.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The United Arab Emirates says it has released two young men it detained over their "selfie" in front of a New Year's Eve hotel fire. The Emirates' state-run WAM news agency quotes the attorney general of the city-state of Dubai as saying investigators found "no evidence of criminal intent."

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Salt Lake County District Attorney says he will re-open the investigation into a fatal police shooting after new video surfaced that appears to show the man on the ground when he was shot. District Attorney Sim Gill says he's also looking into why his office didn't see the video during the original investigation of the shooting. James Dudley Barker was killed after hitting the officer with a snow shovel, which also cut the officer's body camera.
