Former News of the World editor arrested

Andy Coulson also worked for British PM Cameron


 

Andy Coulson, the former editor of Britain’s News of the World and the now former communications director for British PM David Cameron, has been arrested in connection with the phone hacking scandal that has rocked the nation. Coulson has denied any knowledge of NotW staff breaking into the voicemail accounts of news subjects while he was at the tabloid. He is also being questioned regarding the alleged corruption of police sources. News International, the 168-year-old tabloid’s parent company, announced on Thursday it was ceasing publication of the scandal-plagued paper.
