Murdoch media phone hacking scandal may be more widespread

It’s no longer just the News of the World, but possibly also Murdoch’s UK centerpiece The Times and The Sunday Times. The Guardian:

Other titles in Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, including the Sunday Times, are being investigated for allegedly hacking into mobile phones belonging to well-known people, according to Lord Prescott.

The former deputy prime minister used parliamentary privilege to claim in the House of Lords: “The investigation into phone hacking has been extended now to the Sunday Times.”

Scotland Yard announced a fresh inquiry into allegations of widespread phone hacking at the Murdoch-owned News of the World in January. The Met also told Prescott there was evidence his phone may have been targeted by Glenn Mulcaire, a private investigator who was employed by the paper.
