UK ex-PM Brown 'shocked' by hacking allegations

A spokeswoman for former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown says he is shocked by allegations that journalists working for several of Rupert Murdoch's newspapers broke the law to obtain his personal information.
British media were reporting Monday that Brown was one of thousands whose personal details _ including his bank account and his son's medical records _ were targeted by people working for News International titles including The Sun and the Sunday Times. None of the media cited sources.
Brown's spokeswoman said that he was shocked by the alleged "criminality and the unethical means by which personal details have been obtained" about his family.
His wife, Sarah, tweeted that the information was very personal and it was "really hurtful if all true."
