Britain's tabloid phone hacking scandal dominated the airways Wednesday as it swelled to allegedly involve more missing schoolgirls and the families of London terror victims.  News International, the British linchpin of Rupert Murdoch's global News Corp. media empire, was under intense pressure due to its News of the World tabloid, which has admitted hacking into the phones of celebrities but now stands accused of possibly interfering with police investigations into missing girls who were found murdered.

    The number of people who likely were victims of phone hacking by Murdoch media entities has swollen to more than 1,000, according to police in the United Kingdom. The number of people considered likely to have been targeted was previously thought to be around 600. Meanwhile, the number of people who could potentially have been tapped by reporters in search of a scoop grew by 3,706, police said on Tuesday. A number of people who have been implicated in the still-expanding scandal, including former Fleet Street editors Andy Coulson and Rebekah Brooks, are due to appear in court Sept. 26.
