Investigators have formally asked del Castillo to meet with them about her and Sean Penn's encounter with Joaquin Guzman.

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexican authorities say they want to talk to actress Kate del Castillo, who arranged Sean Penn's interview with drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

A federal official who was not authorized to discuss the case publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed Monday that investigators have formally asked del Castillo to meet with them about her and Penn's encounter with Guzman.

The official did not know when that meeting might happen, and said that del Castillo is considered a witness and is not accused of any crime.

Guzman is the Sinaloa drug cartel capo 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.
