"The mobile phone of a British girl who went missing in 2002 and whose murdered body was discovered six months later was repeatedly hacked by the News of the World tabloid at a time when no one knew what had happened to her, according to a lawyer for her family. Mark Lewis said the newspaper not only intercepted messages left on the phone of the girl, Milly Dowler, 13, by her increasingly frantic family after her disappearance, but also deleted some of those messages when her mailbox became full -- thus making room for new ones and listening to those in turn."
