Dingo baby case re-opens in Australia with new inquest

Thirty years after the disappearance of baby Azaria Chamberlain, whose parents always claimed she was taken by a dingo, Australia is preparing a new inquest to try to resolve the question.

Azaria's mother, Lindy, was found guilty of murder in 1982.

But she was later exonerated after a piece of the baby's clothing was found in an area full of dingo lairs.

Sources in the Northern Territory have told The Age newspaper that a new inquest would likely open next year. Nick Bryant reports.
