DNA test confirms Ceausescu's remains

DNA test confirms Ceausescu's remains

The son of late dictator Nicolae Ceausescu says DNA tests conducted on the remains of his parents have confirmed the bodies are theirs.
Ceausescu ruled Romania for 25 years with an iron fist before being ousted and executed with his wife Elena during the 1989 anti-communist revolt in which more than 1,000 people were killed.
Some Romanians had doubts that the couple were really buried in the Ghencea military cemetery in Bucharest.
Valentin Ceausescu has told the Associated Press Wednesday the test result will bring to an a two decades long mystery.
Their bodies were exhumed in July at the request of the family.
