LONDON - British police said on Saturday they were assessing new information about the deaths of Princess Diana and her friend Dodi al Fayed in a Paris road crash in 1997.
London's Metropolitan Police did not elaborate on the information, or its source, but Britain's Sky news television station said it had come from the parents-in-law of a former soldier and had been passed on by the Royal Military Police.
The force said in a statement it was studying information into the deaths that it had recently received and was "assessing its relevance and credibility".
"This is not a re-investigation and does not come under Operation Paget," it said, referring to the police investigation into the allegations of murder.
Diana and Dodi and their chauffeur were killed when their car crashed in a road tunnel while pursued by photographers after the couple left the Ritz hotel on Aug. 31, 1997.
