Murdoch Legal Manager Arrested

The former legal manager for the now-defunct tabloid the News of the World was arrested Thursday in the ongoing phone-hacking investigation. Tom Crone, 60, is being held on suspicion of intercepting communications. A source at News International, the British wing of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., said Crone’s arrest followed information that was passed to police from the company Management and Standards Committee. When Murdoch appeared before the Leveson Inquiry last year, he alleged of a cover-up at News International and implicated Crone, although Crone denied the claim.
