U.k. Police Still Arresting Reporters In Hacking Scandal

ritain's Scotland Yard is still making arrests in connection with the hacking scandal that hit Rupert Murdoch's British newspapers nearly three years ago. On Wednesday, two former reporters for Murdoch's London Sun were taken into custody and questioned in connection with claims that they had conspired to hack into the voicemail of celebrities and politicians when they worked for the now-defunct News of the World in 2005 and 2006. The arrested reporters were Rachel Richardson, who now edits the Sun's Sunday magazine supplement Fabulous, and Jane Atkinson, currently the Sun's northern features editor. News International, which overseas News Corp's publishing business in the U.K., has reportedly agreed to provide legal counsel for the two. London newspaper reports also said that four other former NoW journalists, who no longer have connections with Murdoch's newspapers, were also arrested and questioned. Scotland Yard said that the arrests were conducted in connection with new lines of inquiry. The arrests brought to an even 100 the number of persons detained in connection with the phone-hacking investigation.
