Family of murdered schoolgirl meets UK gov't

Family of murdered schoolgirl meets UK gov't

The family of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler is meeting with Britain's deputy prime minister to discuss the phone hacking scandal.
The scandal exploded last week when it was reported that the News of the World tabloid had hacked the mobile phone of the 13-year-old murder victim in 2002 _ even as her family and police were desperately searching for her. The tabloid's operatives reportedly deleted some messages from the phone's voicemail, giving the girl's parents false hope that she was still alive. The paper closed this week.
The hacking has proved to be an embarrassment to the government, because one of the senior editors of the paper later worked for Prime Minister David Cameron.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg met with the family early Monday.
