Public outrage has grown following fresh claims that the News of the World hacked the phones of relatives of soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, after the initial scandal involving phones of murder victims.

Inside Story, with presenter Sohail Rahman, discusses with guests: Jan Keulen, the general director of the Doha Centre for Media Freedom; Steven Murdoch from the University of Cambridge; and Martin Bentham, the home affairs editor of the Evening Standard newspaper.
