Museum verifies Rembrandt find

After a CSI-style investigation and restoration spanning eight years, the Mauritshuis museum in the Netherlands, has declared that one of its star paintings really is by Dutch master Rembrandt.

The announcement should end years of debate about whether Saul and David was a real Rembrandt.

Researchers used advanced X-ray techniques to establish that the original pigments were the same as those Rembrandt used in the 17th century.
