Attorney General Eric Holder is personally thanking the Drug Enforcement Administration for its role in Saturday morning's arrest of Mexico's most-wanted drug trafficker.

In an email to DEA agents, Holder says he wants to send his personal congratulations for the work done to help arrest Joaquin "Chapo" Guzman.

In the email, obtained by The Associated Press, Holder tells DEA agents that the arrest would not have happened, in his words, "without the courage and commitment of all of you."

Guzman was arrested early Saturday morning at a hotel in the seaside hotel in Mazatlan, Mexico.
