Phone-Hacking Victim List Grows

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.
