Mohamed al-Fayed, Tycoon Whose Son Died With Diana, Is Dead at 94

An Egyptian businessman, known for his collection of high-profile properties in London and Paris, had his success overshadowed by a shocking fatal car accident.

The Egyptian business magnate, Mohamed al-Fayed, known for his collection of prestigious properties and his sway in Europe and the Middle East, passed away on Wednesday at the age of 94. His reputation was marred by the tragic 1997 Paris car accident that claimed the lives of his eldest son, Dodi, and Diana, Princess of Wales.

The Fulham Football Club in Britain, a former possession of Mr. Fayed, confirmed his death in a statement released on Friday. The location of his death was not disclosed.
