The News International phone-hacking scandal continues. A former police officer was arrested Thursday as part of the British investigation into corrupt links between police and journalists. Police are investigating former chief constable Craig Denholm for his alleged knowledge of the hacking of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler’s phone. Rupert Murdoch’s onetime deputy Rebekah Brooks was officially charged in May with “perverting justice” after reporters from her tabloid News of the World hacked into the murdered schoolgirl’s cellphone.
