A published photo showing Princess Diana’s last moments has provoked widespread outrage in Britain.
A spokeswoman for Diana’s memorial foundation says “people are appalled” by an Italian magazine’s decision to print a black-and-white shot of the princess receiving oxygen in the wreckage of the car crash that killed her.
One tabloid newspaper is responding by saying, “Shame on you.” And another vows not to reprint what it calls a “grotesque” image.
Business magnate Mohamed al Fayed, whose son Dodi also died in the crash, calls it “vile.”
The Milan-based magazine published the snapshot along with excerpts from a new French book that purports to detail a criminal investigation of Diana’s death.
