Inquest Into Diana's Last Moments

PARIS (AP) -- A British coroner's jury is in Paris, retracing the last moments of Princess Diana, who died in a car with boyfriend Dodi Fayed over ten years ago.

The inquest is to determine when, where and how Diana and Fayed were killed.

Today, the 11 jurors rode in a bus to the Place de la Concorde, in part to get an idea of traffic patterns.

The next stop was the most sensitive: the tunnel where Diana's car slammed into a concrete pillar that fateful night in August 1997.

The jurors peered into the tunnel as police blocked off traffic.

During its two-day visit to Paris, the jury will also see the crash site in the evening, to more closely recreate the conditions of the midnight crash, and visit the hospital where Diana died.
