AL FAYED'S OFFER

The father of Princess Diana’s companion Dodi Al Fayed is offering a reward of up to $1.7 million for information on the crash in which the Princess and Dodi died in Paris on August 31, 1997, Al Fayed’s lawyer said on Tuesday. A newspaper ad promised the reward for information that would help identify a mysterious Fiat Uno, two motorcycles or any other vehicle that may have been involved in the crash. Investigators have concluded Diana’s Mercedes S-280 brushed against a white Fiat Uno car just before the crash in a Paris underpass. But neither the mysterious Uno nor its owner has ever been located, leaving this angle of the inquiry up in the air. Investigators say they uncovered no evidence to support the theory that Diana was the victim of a conspiracy. The state prosecutor’s office, in a possible hint at the probe’s eventual conclusions, referred to the crash as an “accident.”
