At this rate Rupert Murdoch is not going to have anyone left to work for him.Two journalists at his paper News of the World have been arrested on charges of phone hacking.
The former news editor and current chief reporter from the News of the World are in police custody after being arrested on suspicion of unlawfully intercepting mobile phone voicemail messages.
Ian Edmondson and Neville Thurlbeck had voluntarily presented themselves at different London police stations this morning and were arrested. It is expected their homes will be searched by officers at midday.
Edmondson was suspended by News of the World earlier this year for hacking into Sienna Miller‘s phone. The arrests today are apparently part of a larger operation Operation Weeting aimed at pressing further charges in the phone hacking scandal that rocked Britain last year.
