DRAMATIC footage has been released showing Columbian Special Forces on a daring mission to capture a drug lord.

The helmet-cam footage shows the operatives firing at wanted narco gang leader Édgar Gutierrez Arenas in the jungle.

But he is seen being bought to justice as special  forces outnumber him after a fierce fire-fight with the other members of his gang, UK website Metro reported.

One of the operatives is heard yelling 'Yipee' before the alleged drug gang are rounded up.

Prior to his capture, Arenas had a bounty of almost $A52,000 (£28,000) on his head and was one of the most wanted men in Colombia.
