UK police arrest journalist in phone hacking probe
LONDON — British police investigating the ongoing phone hacking scandal have arrested a journalist on suspicion of taking part in a conspiracy to gather data from stolen mobile phones.
The 30-year-old man arrested Thursday is the 14th person detained by detectives from Operation Tuleta, one of three parallel police investigations triggered by a scandal that has rocked Britain and Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. empire.
The investigations came amid revelations that reporters at Murdoch's now-shuttered News of the World tabloid routinely intercepted voicemails of celebrities and other public figures.
Dozens have been arrested in the probes of media wrongdoing and corruption. Criminal charges have been brought against Rebekah Brooks, the former chief of News Corp.'s British operations, and Andy Coulson, a former editor and the ex-communications chief for Prime Minister David Cameron.
