About 80 news photographers laid down their cameras today, refusing to take pictures of ministers at a Cabinet meeting to protest the investigation of their colleagues in Princess Diana's death.
"We are here to support our colleagues who were placed under investigation, and who now cannot work, because some of them haven't been returned their press cards," said Joel Robin, a spokesman for the photographers.
Nine photographers and one press motorcyclist are under official investigation for manslaughter and failing to assist people in danger, a crime in France. They have not been formally charged.
Two of the photographers have been prevented from working until the inquiry is completed.
