Concerned family members of the victims of 9/11 are asking to meet with the FBI to investigate allegations that they or their loved ones phones were hacked by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, their attorney told Metro today.

In an open letter to Robert Mueller III, Director FBI, Attorney General Eric Holder, DOJ, and Rep John Conyers of the House Judiciary Committee, family members asked to be included in the probe.

“It is upsetting that there now exists an allegation that a newspaper would seek to illegally obtain information about their love ones, and perhaps even their own personal lives, and exploit it for profit,” said their lawyer, Norman Siegel. ”We need to determine whether or not such unconscionable acts in fact took place.”
