Rebekah Brooks, five others arrested in U.K. phone hacking probe

British police made six arrests early Tuesday in the British media's phone hacking scandal, including Rebekah Brooks, the former top executive of Rupert Murdoch's News International, according to media reports.
Police did not identify those arrested, but a person who had been briefed on the details said Ms. Brooks and her husband, a prominent horse breeder and a friend of Prime Minister David Cameron, were arrested at their house.
The six people were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, police said in a statement. The charge is an indication that investigators may be focusing on a possible coverup of the scope of phone hacking.
