Media baron Rupert Murdoch, his son James, and Rebekah Brooks, who is the former editor of the News of the World, have been asked to appear before Parliament next week.
Parliament is looking into allegations that people working for the News of the World hacked into the cellphones of thousands of people, including murder victims and families who lost loved ones in Afghanistan.
Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown is also accusing reporters working for Murdoch of illegally obtaining private information about him.
