Dead UK soldiers’ families hacked by newspaper

Mobile phones owned by relatives of UK soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan may have been hacked by the News of the World, it is being reported, according to the BBC. The Daily Telegraph claims the phone numbers of relatives of dead service personnel were found in the files of private investigator Glenn Mulcaire. It comes after Prime Minister David Cameron said he would set up a public inquiry into alleged phone hacking. The Royal British Legion has dropped the paper as its campaigning partner. News International said it would be “absolutely appalled and horrified” if there was any truth in the allegations relating to families of dead soldiers.
