Man claiming knowledge of a plot to kill Diana arrested

VIENNA, Austria (AP) — A man who sought $15 million from Mohamed Al Fayed for documents alleging that his son Dodi and Princess Diana were murdered was arrested in a sting involving the FBI and the CIA.
The man, identified only as a 67-year-old Austrian living in the United States, was arrested April 22, Interior Ministry Spokesman Rudolf Gollia said Wednesday.
Dodi Fayed, Diana and their driver Henri Paul were killed Aug. 31 when their car hit a tunnel pillar in Paris.
Gollia said the man had contacted Al Fayed, the owner of Harrods department store in London, and offered to meet him in a hotel in Vienna for the exchange. Al Fayed alerted the FBI, CIA and the Austrian intelligence agency. He sent Harrods’ security chief, John Mcnamara, to meet Gollia.
So far, the investigation in Paris has focused on the drunken condition of Paul, the driver, and the whereabouts of a white Fiat that may have sideswiped the Mercedes carrying the princess.
