LONDON - Police arrested a journalist working for Rupert Murdoch's British Sun newspaper on suspicion of corruption on Tuesday as part of a wide-reaching investigation centered on allegations of phone-hacking by newspaper reporters.

The unnamed 37-year-old man was held at his home in north London at about 6.00 a.m, London's Metropolitan Police said.

News International, the British arm of Murdoch's News Corp empire, confirmed he worked for the Sun.

Detectives also arrested a 29-year-old police officer serving with the Sussex Police force in southern England.

Police said the arrests were made as a result of information provided to it by News Corp's internal Management Standards Committee, which was set up in the wake of the phone hacking scandal.
