Hugh Grant on being ‘hacked’

British actor, a phone-hacking victim, recalls his encounter with a former News of the World journalist.

David Cameron, the British prime minister, has called for an independent inquiry into new allegations that the News of the World tapped the phones of murder victims, and families of those who died in London’s 2005 bombings.

It originally started with allegations involving prominent British figures, including actors and politicians.

Hugh Grant, a British actor, says he believes he was a victim of phone hacking by the newspaper.

He detailed in the New Statesman magazine how he taped conversations with a former News of the World employee who told him his phone had been hacked to find out if there was more to the story.

Grant talks to Al Jazeera about his experience.
