BBC: Brooks to testify to hacking probe committee



LONDON (AP) — The BBC is reporting that former News International executive Rebekah Brooks will testify to a parliamentary committee examining the phone hacking scandal.

Brooks once edited the News of the World tabloid, where the offenses allegedly occurred.

She was arrested Sunday on hacking charges, so her appearance had been in question. Rupert and James Murdoch are to be grilled by British lawmakers Tuesday over the scandal.
