Noriega spends first day in jail back in Panama
Panama's ex-leader Manuel Noriega has been extradited back to his home country from France and taken straight to prison.
(BBC NEWS) Panama City - His plane touched down in Panama City on Sunday evening after flying from Paris via Madrid. After his arrival, he was escorted to El Renacer jail, south east of Panama City.
He was convicted in absentia of crimes committed during his time in power in the 1980s.
The 77-year-old has already spent more than 20 years in prisons in France and the United States.
Last month, a French court approved a request from Panama to send him back home to be jailed over his convictions for murder, corruption and embezzlement.
