Summary Box: UK police arrest 6 in hacking probe

MORE ARRESTS: British police made six arrests early Tuesday in the British media’s phone hacking scandal. Police say the six were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, an indication that investigators may be focusing on a possible coverup of the scope of phone hacking.

WHO ARE THEY?: Police did not identify those arrested, but The Associated Press has learned that they include Rebekah Brooks, the former top executive of Rupert Murdoch’s News International.

PREVIOUS CASE: Brooks was arrested in July. She was later released on bail and has denied wrongdoing.
