NEW YORK — Angry family members of victims of the 9/11 attacks and a growing number of lawmakers on Wednesday called for a U.S. investigation into allegations that journalists at the British News of the World tabloid sought to hack the phones of their lost love ones.
"Someone should look into it to see if their rights were violated - the family members I've talked to are appalled, they're disgruntled, they have to relive the pain all over again," Jim Riches, a former deputy chief in the New York Fire Department whose 29-year-old fireman son was killed in the attacks, told POLITICO.
