Brits Stand Behind Broadcast of Princess Di Death Tableau

England's Channel 4 has declared that despite protests from the U.K.'s Conservative Party, on June 6 it will air, as planned, the documentary Diana: The Witnesses in the Tunnel — complete with explicit images from the interior of the car where the princess, as well as her friend Dodi Fayed and their driver, died a decade ago. The station says execs have "carefully and sensitively selected" the images to be shown and that in a shot of the car's occupants, the deceased have been blacked out. "We acknowledge there is great public sensitivity surrounding pictures of the victims," Channel 4 concedes in a statement, "and these have not been included."
