The last remains of freedom fighter Patrice Lumumba are finally back in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
A gold-capped tooth is the only remains of the Congolese independence icon, who was executed and had his body dissolved in acid in January 1961.
His tooth had been in Belgium ever-since, after it was kept as a trophy by Gérard Soete, a former Belgian police commissioner.
