The Vatican confirmed Friday that it intervened in the extradition row over Gen. Augusto Pinochet, asking the British government to send the former Chilean dictator home. Spokesman Joaquin Navarro-Valls said the Vatican made its appeal about a month ago after a request from the Chilean government. Pinochet was arrested Oct. 16 in London on a Spanish warrant alleging that he ordered killings, torture and hostage-taking during his 17-year rule.
