There are new allegations that British military may have been involved in the 1997 death of Princess Diana.
According to the website of the Sunday People newspaper, the new claims came from a seven-page handwritten letter written by the parents-in-law of a British special forces sniper. In the letter, which was written after the breakup of the soldier's marriage, the soldier boasted to his wife that a British Special Air Services commando unit was behind the deaths of Princess Diana, her boyfriend Dodi Al Fayed and their driver, Henri Paul.
The newspaper did not name the sniper and did not offer a source for its reporting.
The three were killed August 31, 1997, in Paris when their car struck a concrete pillar. The car was being chased by members of the paparazzi before the crash. A subsequent inquest found Paul was drunk and driving at high speed.
London Metropolitan Police released a statement, saying it was "scoping information" and "assessing its credibility." The statement went on to say "this is not a re-investigation."
