Another Journalist Arrested for Phone Hacking

Man is third reporter from Rupert Murdoch's The Sun arrested.


British police arrested Tuesday a journalist from Rupert Murdoch's tabloid The Sun in relation to the alleged gathering of data from stolen mobile phones, police and News International said.

The 37-year-old man, bailed later on Tuesday, is the third journalist from Britain's best-selling newspaper to have been arrested recently on suspicion of handling stolen goods, and the second such arrest in as many days.

Scotland Yard said in a statement that detectives arrested the man after he attended an east London police station by appointment on Tuesday.
