Paris - Prosecutors opened an investigation on Sunday into the death of a young French woman at the residence of a South African diplomat in Paris, a judicial source said.

An autopsy was to take place on Monday, the source said, after the woman's body was discovered at the diplomat's home on Saturday.

Police sources told Europe 1 radio the 26-year-old woman had joined a party at the diplomat's home and stopped breathing after she went to sleep on Saturday afternoon.

The sources told the radio that party-goers alleged the woman had taken drugs, including cocaine.

    It will be another cover up as the diplomat will have diplomatic immunity. It's about time these people were treated like ordinary citizens and investigated correctly like everyone else would be.

      The diplomat can be prosecuted in South Africa, assuming he did in fact do something wrong, since the poor departed could have taken her own drugs to the party.
