Found remians are thought to be members of the Russian csar family
Experts say that it is "highly probable" remains found near the Russian city of Yekaterinburg in July are two children of the last Russian csar, Nicholas II Romanov. According to BBC News and the Associated Press in the Star Tribune, primary forensic work identifies the remains as Alexei, heir to the throne, and Maria, his elder sister.
The remains of other members of the family were exhumed in 1991, according to BBC.
Archaeologists found the bones in a burned field outside the city of Yekaterinburg. That city is in the Ural Mountains and is also the place where the Romanov family were held prisoner and shot by the Bolsheviks in 1918.
The BBC's James Rodgers in Moscow says the whereabouts of the missing Romanov children has been one of the great unsolved mysteries of Russia's blood-soaked revolution.
