Sienna Miller hacking

Sienna Miller hacking
Actress Sienna Miller has reached an agreement in her case against a British tabloid that hacked into her mobile phone.

Miller's lawyers say the News of the World has admitted liability in the case and will pay the actress 100,000 pounds ($165,000) and also reveal the full details of the intrusion into her privacy.

The newspaper's lawyers said Friday they are pleased the case is being concluded. The News of the World has admitted that its journalists have hacked into the voicemail systems of celebrities.

It is expected that many victims will receive compensation from the newspaper, which is one of the best-selling tabloids in Britain.

Several of its journalists have been arrested following the revelations.
