Noriega to face fresh charges

Former dictator extradited to France facing fresh money laundering charges.

    Former Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega has been extradited from the US to Francce, where he is expected to answer to fresh money laundering charges.

    His extradition is just the latest chapter in the legal troubles for the former CIA informant.
