Salvador Dali's body exhumed in Spain in parental row

Forensic experts in Spain have exhumed the body of surrealist painter Salvador Dalí to extract DNA to settle a paternity case.

Samples were taken from the artist's teeth, bones and nails in a four-hour operation.

The exhumation from a crypt in a museum in the city of Figueres followed a court order on behalf of a woman who says her mother had an affair with the painter.
