Nine photographers and a press motorcyclist are cleared of responsibility in the crash that killed Diana after a French court upholds the prior dismissal of manslaughter charges. In a separate case, however, the photographers remain under investigation for taking pictures of the victims after the crash.
Just days before the fifth anniversary of Diana's death, a book by another of Diana's former bodyguards sets off a firestorm. Ken Wharfe's tell-all makes a wide range of accusations, including one that the British intelligence agencies bugged Diana's phones. That claim was later proven false.
