London - British broadcaster Sky News says it authorised the hacking of e-mails on two separate occasions but insists the move was in the public interest.
The news channel says that in one case it broke into the e-mails belonging to Anne and John Darwin, who became notorious after the latter tried to fake his own death in an elaborate insurance fraud.
The news channel said in a statement on Thursday that "we do not take such decisions lightly or frequently" and said the investigation had served the public interest.
