British police made a round of arrests this morning in the country's fast-growing scandal over reporting tactics used by the Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid, "News of the World."
Murdoch's son James announced yesterday that the paper, once the world's largest, would shut down this Sunday.
Among those arrested is former NOTW editor Andy Coulson, until recently a top aide to conservative British Prime Minister David Cameron.
Cameron acknowledged today that the relation between the press and political leaders had become too cozy and called for investigations into the scandal.
