The crash that killed DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES and her lover DODI FAYED was caused by a laser beam being flashed into the eyes of their driver, it has been claimed.
New witnesses have told British detectives, leading a fresh enquiry into the fatal August 1997 accident, they saw a motorcyclist point a laser into the eyes of chauffeur HENRI PAUL, causing the Mercedes to crash inside the Pont De L’Alma tunnel in Paris, France.
One witness said he saw “an enormous radar-like flash of light”, reports UK newspaper the Daily Express.
The new evidence supports theories Diana, Al Fayed and Paul were assassinated by the British Secret Service on behalf of the UK’s royal family.
The laser plot came to light as French medics from the hospital where the princess died claim she was pregnant at the time of the crash.
Conspiracy theorists insist Diana and her lover were killed to avoid the royal family’s embarrassment at her having a child by a Muslim.
Al Fayed’s father, tycoon MOHAMED AL FAYED, has always maintained the crash was not an accident.
The investigation is being led by former Metropolitan police commissioner LORD STEVENS, who was Britain’s top cop, and is expected to last into 2007.
