UK phone hacking scandal topples News Int'l CEO

LONDON (AP) - The phone-hacking scandal in Britain has claimed another victim.
Rebekah Brooks, one of media mogul Rupert Murdoch's top lieutenants, resigned today as chief executive of News International, the News Corp. unit that controls British newspapers.
Prime Minister David Cameron's spokesman says Brooks made the right decision.
Brooks has become the biggest casualty so far in the phone hacking scandal at a now-defunct U.K. Sunday tabloid, the News of the World.
Meanwhile, James Murdoch says News International will run advertisements in major British newspapers to apologize to the nation for the scandal. He says the company will follow this up in the future with communications that address what he calls "the wrongdoing that occurred."
