Former Panama dictator Noriega arrives in France

Manuel Noriega, the former Panamanian dictator, has been extradited to Paris to face charges of money-laundering. He had been in a US prison since 1992, having been ousted in 1989 and sentenced to forty years in prison for drugs and arms trafficking. France has promised to give him a new trial, but if found guilty, the 72 year old could face another ten years in jail.
