Phones owned by relatives of dead UK soldiers were allegedly hacked by the News of the World, a national newspaper reports.
The Daily Telegraph claims the phone numbers of relatives of dead service personnel were found in the files of private investigator Glenn Mulcaire.
This comes after Prime Minister David Cameron said he would set up a public inquiry into alleged phone hacking.
Rupert Murdoch, the paper's owner, has called claims of hacking "deplorable".
News International said it would be "absolutely appalled and horrified" if there was any truth in the allegations relating to families of dead soldiers and it would be immediately contacting the Ministry of Defence.
A spokesman for the company said: "News International's record as a friend of the armed services and of our servicemen and servicewomen, is impeccable.
"Our titles have campaigned in support of the military over many years and will continue to do so. If these allegations are true we are absolutely appalled and horrified. We will be contacting the MoD immediately to try and verify the situation."
Rupert Murdoch says this, while at the same time refusing to accept the resignation of the top people involved.
This is the same asshole that owns Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, and others.
What a peice of shit.
