Rumbles of discontent in Washington about whether News of the World-style phone hacking has been happening in the US are getting louder.
Several US politicians are now calling for alleged misconduct in the US by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation to be investigated.
They want to know if his reporters hacked the phones of victims of the September 11, 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, as was reported by one British newspapers.
Murdoch's US-based properties include the Wall Street Journal, the New York Post and the right-wing Fox News TV Channel.
