LONDON—British police investigating potential cases of journalists
bribing public officials for information arrested a former prison
officer and a journalist at News Corp
tabloid Thursday, bringing to at least ten the number of Sun
journalists arrested in the probe.
arrests deepen News Corp.'s problems in a high-profile scandal
involving illicit reporting tactics in the U.K. While the scandal began
at the company's now-closed News of the World
tabloid, it has since
spread to the Sun
, the biggest-selling newspaper in News Corp.'s stable.
