U.K. May Charge 11 for Hacking

British prosecutors said Wednesday that they are considering criminal charges against 11 people in the phone-hacking scandal that shook News Corp.’s U.K. newspaper News of the World last year. Police have recommended 11 names to the Crown Prosecution Service, including four journalists, a police officer, and six other people. The CPS said it will not name the individuals, and it remains unclear how closely related the charges will be to the phone-hacking scandal.
