The Sun’s Royal Editor Arrested

British police nabbed The Sun’s royal editor and two other people in a dawn raid. The editor, Duncan Larcombe, was arrested on suspicion of paying a public official for information. Scotland Yard says the arrests were based on information obtained from News Corporation’s management-standards committee, which Rupert Murdoch set up after the hacking scandal at News of the World. The Sun is one of Murdoch’s remaining British papers. With the new arrests, more than 50 people have been arrested in the investigation into phone hacking, computer hacking, and payments to public officials.
