[August 05, 2011]  LONDON (AP) -- A lawyer for several alleged victims of tabloid phone hacking says lawsuits will soon be filed against a second newspaper group, Trinity Mirror PLC.

Mark Lewis said Friday the claims would be filed in "a few weeks." He would not disclose identities of his clients.

Britain's phone hacking scandal centers on allegations that journalists eavesdropped on private phone messages, bribed police for information and hacked email accounts.

The crisis has shuttered Rupert Murdoch's News of the World tabloid and rattled his global News Corp. empire.

But there have also been allegations of hacking by other newspapers. This week Paul McCartney's ex-wife, Heather Mills, claimed she was hacked by a Trinity Mirror journalist.

McCartney says he will contact police over the claim.
