News International has apparently offered the family of Milly Dowling a three million pound settlement to end the lawsuit that arose out of allegations that News of the World reporters hacked the missing teenager's cell phone. The hacking led to the family's belief that Milly might still be alive, since messages were deleted. Milly was eventually found murdered. Such a payment would be one of the largest ever made by any newspaper has ever made in such circumstances. More here from the Guardian and the Hollywood Reporter.
