Saturday, July 9, 2011
LONDON (AP) -- Rupert Murdoch has arrived at the offices of his U.K. newspaper division amid the phone hacking scandal engulfing the News of the World tabloid, which has been shut down and published its last edition.
TV footage showed the News Corp. CEO being driven into the east London offices of News International on Sunday. He was seated in the front passenger seat with a copy of the last issue of the News of the World in his hands.
Allegations the paper's journalists paid police for information and hacked into the voicemails of young murder victims and the grieving families of dead soldiers prompted Murdoch's News International to shut down the paper.
