UK PM Cameron offers sympathy to predecessor

British prime minister David Cameron says his heart goes out to his predecessor Gordon Brown after reports that The Sun newspaper obtained confidential information that Brown's infant son Fraser had cystic fibrosis.
Cameron said Tuesday that the case looks like "yet another appalling invasion of privacy," and said it was unacceptable and heartbreaking for the family concerned.
In an interview with the BBC, Brown said he and his wife Sarah were in tears after being informed by Rebekah Brooks, then the editor of The Sun and now the chief executive of News International, that the paper knew about his son's illness.
