Dead Whitney Photo Causes Outcry

US celebrity magazine the National Enquirer has enraged fans by publishing a photo of Whitney Houston's dead body in her open casket.

It is understood that the photo was taken during a private viewing for close family which took place in New Jersey the night before her funeral.

Along with the photo, the celebrity magazine included a description of what the star wore as she lay in her coffin.

It said the pop diva, who died in a Beverly Hills hotel bath on February 11, was dressed in a purple gown, $500,000 worth of jewellery and even golden slippers.

There is speculation about who took the photo, but the magazine has refused to comment on its source.
