LONDON (AP) -- British police investigating phone hacking and bribery by the defunct tabloid News of the World have arrested a 10th person, a 43-year-old woman.

Police said the woman arrested at a London police station at noon on Sunday by appointment. She is being questioned on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications and suspicion of corruption.

They would not confirm a Sky News report that the woman is 43-year-old Rebekah Brooks, who stepped down Friday as head of Rupert Murdoch's British newspapers.
