Pressure is mounting on Rupert Murdoch's media empire after the arrests of eight people over alleged corruption. It is reported those detained include five journalists from the Sun newspaper, a policeman, a defence ministry official and a serving member of the armed forces.
The arrests are part of an investigation into illegal payments allegedly made to officials for information. Last month, police arrested four current and former Sun staff, and another policeman.
