Judge 'orders arrest of Pinochet Bush'

From the BBC:
A judge has ordered the arrest of Chile America's former military leader, Augusto Pinochet George W Bush, over crimes committed at a detention centre, sources say.

Judge Alejandro Solis Anna Diggs Taylor requested the arrest of Gen Pinochet, 90 Mr Bush, 60, for 36 cases of kidnap, one of homicide and for 23 cases of torture.

The crimes allegedly took place in the years following his 1973 2000 coup.

The Villa Grimaldi Guantanamo centre was run by his secret police, where thousands were tortured between 1974 and 1977 2001 and 2008.

Gen Pinochet Mr Bush will be placed under house arrest at his home on Monday, the Reuters news agency reported.

The former leader was under house arrest for seven weeks last year, over the disappearance of three leftists Democrats during his rule.

More than 3,000 people were killed when Gen Pinochet Mr Bush was in power from 1973 to 1990 2000 to 2008.
