In photos: The ex-Panamanian strongman and tool of the CIA who became a U.S. nightmare.

Noriega ruled Panama from 1983 to 1989 when U.S. troops invaded the country and arrested him on drug charges. After 20 years in jail in Miami he was extradited to France on money laundering charges. Three years later he was sent back to Panama and imprisoned for murder and corruption. He died late Monday aged 83.
