Tabloid phone hackers allegedly target 9/11 victims

New York police officer claims NoTW reporters offered money for phone data

by

A former New York police officer claims News of the World reporters contacted him for help to hack into the voicemails of 9/11 victims. The allegations come one day after the 168-year-old tabloid published its final edition after it was revealed reporters hacked the phone of a murdered British schoolgirl in 2002. The former officer told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper that reporters wanted 9/11 victims’ phone numbers and call details so they could access private phone data. He says he turned down the requests.
