Ned Kelly's remains identified

DNA tests conclusively confirm that skeleton belongs to infamous Australian outlaw.

    Australian scientists have identified the remains of Ned Kelly, the country's most infamous outlaw.

    He was hanged in 1880 after being convicted of killing a policeman, and spending years on the run.

    Kelly was the subject of the world’s first ever feature film in 1906 and, even today, opinion is split as to whether he was a cold-blooded killer or a folk hero who took a stand against colonial persecution.

    But the renegade's legend lives on, as Al Jazeera’s Andrew Thomas reports from Sydney.
