Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, the US boxer whose wrongful conviction for murder was the subject of a Bob Dylan song and a film starring Denzel Washington, has died aged 76.
Carter spent 19 years in prison and was released in 1985 after it was determined he did not get a fair trial, with his case having become a symbol of racial injustice.
