News Corp. Journalists Arrested In Phone Hackings Scandal

Reported by Ellen - April 7, 2011 -

As we've previously reported, Murdoch's British tabloid, News of the World, has gotten itself in a wee bit of trouble lately with regard to a widespread hacking scheme. Unfortunately for them, the scandal keeps growing as now two News Corp. journalists have been arrested. How high will it go?

As The Guardian reported:

The Guardian understands that Edmondson, NoW's former head of news, is being questioned by officers at Wimbledon police station. Thurlbeck, the paper's chief reporter, is at Kingston police station.

The arrests are the first salvo in Operation Weeting, whose tasks include establishing whether there are grounds for bringing further prosecutions in the phone-hacking scandal
