Top US lawman, 9/11 families to discuss Murdoch
Attorney General Eric Holder has agreed to meet family members of some of the victims of the 9/11 attacks.

Washington: Attorney General Eric Holder has agreed to meet on August 24 with family members of some of the victims of the September 11, 2001, attacks regarding the FBI inquiry into allegations surrounding Rupert Murdoch's media empire, a lawyer said on Wednesday.

According to a London tabloid's story based on unidentified sources, a former New York police officer-turned-private investigator said he had been contacted by journalists from Murdoch's News of the World who offered to pay him to retrieve private phone records of September 11 victims in the United States.

The story said the investigator turned down the proposal. New York attorney Norman Siegel said he and about 20 family members he represents will make some recommendations to the Justice Department regarding possible actions the government could take to investigate the story.

Justice Department spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler confirmed the meeting date.

Siegel said the group will listen to what the attorney general has to say regarding the probe the Justice Department is conducting and that "we will cooperate with DOJ and the FBI."

Jim Riches, whose 29-year-old firefighter son was killed on 9/11 in the destruction of New York's World Trade Center, said he will attend the August 24 meeting because "we want to find out if anyone's phones were hacked, the progress of the investigation and what they intend to do if they find somebody accountable."
