In an update to the ongoing coverage of the News of the World hacking scandal, The Guardian reported Monday that journalists from other News International papers — The Sun and The Sunday Times — targeted former Prime Minister Gordon Brown. Beyond attempts to hack his voicemail, reporters accessed information about his bank account his legal file, and details about his children’s medical conditions. The evidence comes from notebooks taken from private investigator Glenn Mulcaire by police investigating cellphone hacking allegations. It shows that Brown was targeted by hackers for more than 10 years, during his time as chancellor of the exchequer and as the prime minister.
