Colombia has announced the capture of the man listed as the country's most wanted drug lord, Daniel Rendon.

A presidential spokesman made the announcement Wednesday.

The government had offered a reward of up to $2 million for the capture of Rendon, an alleged paramilitary drug trafficker also known as "Don Mario."  Rendon is alleged to have offered $1,000 for each police officer his gunmen killed.
