Murdoch to pay Milly's parents damages
London -The owners of the now-defunct News of the World will pay about £3m to the family of the murdered girl at the centre of the phone hacking scandal in Britain, reports said on Monday.
Milly Dowler's family will receive £2m and News International will also make a donation of £1m pounds to charity as part of the settlement, Sky News reported.
The Rupert Murdoch-owned News of the World was shut down in August after a public outcry when it emerged a private investigator working for the Sunday tabloid hacked into the dead girl's voicemail after she went missing in 2002.
The 13-year-old's remains were found six months later in a forest.
News International declined to comment.
