Authorities in Iceland say they will dig up the remains of former chess champion Bobby Fischer to settle a paternity claim.
Iceland's Supreme Court has ruled that tissue samples are needed to determine the paternity of the Filipina daughter of Fischer's former lover.
It overturned a ruling by a lower court earlier this year denying the request.
Fischer became the only U.S. world chess champion by defeating the Soviet Union's masters but spent his last years as a fugitive from U.S. authorities, wanted for defying sanctions against Yugoslavia.
He died at age 64 after an unspecified illness two years ago in Iceland.
