PARIS, Oct. 25 (UPI) -- Soraya Esfandiari Bakhtiari, the second wife of the former Shah of Iran, died in Paris Thursday. She was 69. Unlike Princess Fawzia -- the sister of Egypt's last king and Pahlavi's first wife -- Soraya came from commoner stock. But she also belonged to Iran's powerful Bakhtiar tribe.
