BRITISH PM TO LOOK INTO PHONE HACKING 9/11 VICTIMS


LONDON, U.K. - British Prime Minister David Cameron(right photo) vowed Wednesday to look into whether 9/11 victims were targeted in Britain's phone hacking scandal, as lawmakers were poised to demand that Rupert Murdoch give up his goal of taking over a lucrative U.K. broadcaster.
The fallout from a phone hacking and police bribery scandal at Murdoch's UK newspapers roiled unabated across Britain's political landscape and grew near to striking its hardest blow yet at the media baron's global empire.
  • "There is a firestorm, if you like, that is engulfing parts of the media, parts of the police, and indeed our political system's ability to respond," Cameron said in the House of Commons. He said the focus must now be on the victims, and make sure that the guilty are prosecuted.
  • The Daily Mirror newspaper claimed some journalists had approached a private investigator in the US to try to access the phone data of some of the victims of 9/11. Cameron told lawmakers yesterday he will look into the claims.
  • The uproar also claimed another top executive his job. News International, Murdoch's British unit, said its legal manager, Tom Crone, has left the company, but spokeswoman Daisy Dunlop declined to say if Crone had resigned or been told to leave.
But a defiant mood was evident at one News International paper, The Sun tabloid, which headlined with ‘Brown Wrong' across its front page in response to claims by former Prime Minister Gordon Brown(left photo) the paper had obtained confidential medical records of his younger son.
Outrage has grown and Murdoch's News Corp's share price has fallen since a report last week that The News of the World hacked the phone of teenage murder victim Milly Dowler in 2002.
