1990: Former leader of Panama Manuel Noriega surrenders to American forces 13 days after the United States invaded Panama in an attempt to force him from power. Five days into the invasion, Noriega took refuge in the Vatican diplomatic mission in Panama City, where he stayed until surrendering. Upon his surrender, he was immediately flown to the United States for trial on charges of drug trafficking, racketeering and money laundering.
