Jury Rules That Princess Diana was Unlawfully Killed by Reckless Actions of Driver and Paparazzi

LONDON (AP) - A coroner's jury has ruled that Princess Diana and boyfriend Dodi Fayed were unlawfully killed through the reckless actions of their driver and the paparazzi in 1997.

The jury had been told that a verdict of unlawful killing would mean that they believed the reckless behavior amounted to manslaughter. It was the most serious verdict available to them.

The couple died when their speeding car slammed into a concrete pillar in Paris while it was being chased by photographers in cars and on motorbikes.
