MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexico's attorney general says he has received a letter from fugitive drug lord Rafael Caro Quintero asking the government not to give in to the United States' demand for his capture and extradition to try him for the 1985 killing of a U.S. federal agent.

Top prosecutor Jesus Murillo Karam says the letter was also addressed to Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and the interior ministry. He has not elaborated further on its content.

An appeals court in August overturned Caro Quintero's conviction and ordered him released from a maximum-security prison in August, enraging the U.S. government.

Mexico's Supreme Court later annulled the order and an arrest warrant was issued for Caro Quintero, who has been in hiding since his release.
