A fourth inquest began yesterday into the death of a nine-week-old baby, whose parents say she was taken from a tent in the Outback by a wild dingo.

Azaria Chamberlain's mother Lindy was convicted in 1980 of murdering her daughter but later cleared. She and her ex-husband, Michael, hope new evidence about dingo attacks on children will convince a coroner in the Northern Territory and end 32 years of speculation about Azaria's death.
