LONDON -- A person familiar with the matter says that a review launched at Rupert Murdoch's News International in the wake of the tabloid phone hacking scandal will also weigh journalistic standards at its other U.K titles, including The Times of London.

Murdoch's U.K. newspaper arm has been shaken by widespread allegations of illegal behavior at the now-defunct News of the World, once the country's most popular Sunday tabloid.

It has since called in a London law firm to help review journalistic standards across the company.

The person said the review would examine other News International publications, including the 226-year-old Times, The Sunday Times, and The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling daily. The person requested anonymity because she wasn't authorized to speak publicly.
