In pictures: Pinochet's stay in Britain
General Pinochet's return to Chile brings to an end a 16-month saga which began in October 1998, when he was arrested while recovering from a back operation in a London hospital.





An anti-Pinochet protestor celebrates outside the London clinic where General Pinochet is being treated, after hearing the Law Lords' decision that he does not have immunity from arrest.





General Pinochet arrives at Belmarsh Magistrates Court, south east London, on 11 December. It is his first public appearance since his arrest. He refuses to recognise the court's jurisdiction.





General Pinochet's ally Baroness Thatcher visits him and his wife Licia Hiriat at the Wentworth Estate in Surrey, where he is under house arrest.





An anti-Pinochet demonstrator appeals to Home Secretary Jack Straw not to send the former dictator home.





Disappointed protestors outside the main gate of Wentworth hug each other when the decision not to extradite the general to Spain comes through.





Demonstrators look at crosses bearing the names and photos of alleged victims of General Augusto Pinochet.





A Chilean jet takes off from RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire ferrying General Pinochet on his journey home to Chile.
