Washington, Aug 13(ANI): The probe into the News Corporation's phone-hacking scandal has so far failed to find any evidence of UK-based journalists being responsible for hacking the phones of 9/11 terror attack victims.

According to the sources, the US Government has widened the scope of probe to see whether they can establish a broader pattern of more recent misconduct at the company's operations in the US.

British Police overseeing the probe told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that none of the phone numbers of 9/11 victims could be cited as evidence found till date.ondon's Scotland Yard has also failed to find any evidence after examining voluminous phone records of allegedly phone-hacking victims.

A Scotland Yard spokesperson declined to comment on the ongoing probe into the scandal.

The New York Police Department has told the FBI that it has no evidence to prove that such violations actually occurred.

The FBI crime office also arrived at same conclusion, the Wall Street Journal reports.

US Attorney General Eric Holder plans to call on 9/11 victims' families to discuss their concerns about the issue.

A British newspaper, Daily Mirror had earlier alleged that News Corp. journalists had attempted to hack the phones of 9/11 victims. (ANI)
