British police probe new Diana murder claim
http://news.ninemsn.com.au: British police are examining new information about the 1997 death of Diana, princess of Wales, reportedly including an allegation that she was murdered by someone in the British military.
Scotland Yard police headquarters said it was checking the credibility of recently received information about the deaths of the princess and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed.
They were killed by a car crash in a Paris underpass in the early hours of August 31, 1997, along with their driver, Henri Paul.
Citing a military source, Britain’s domestic Press Association news agency said it understood the allegation was made by the former parents-in-law of an ex-soldier, based on information he had talked about in the past.
PA and Sky News television said the information had been passed to Scotland Yard by the Royal Military Police.
“The Metropolitan Police Service is scoping information that has recently been received in relation to the deaths and assessing its relevance and credibility,” Scotland Yard said in a statement.
“The assessment will be carried out by officers from the specialist crime and operations command.
