Former News Int'l CEO Rebekah Brooks released on bail

LONDON - Rebekah Brooks, former chief executive of News Corp's British newspaper arm News International, was released on bail early on Monday after being questioned over the phone-hacking scandal, the Metropolitan police said in a statement on Monday.
British police earlier had arrested the 43-year-old as part of an investigation into allegations of illegal voicemail interception and police bribery.
Brooks, who has denied knowing about the alleged hacking cases, resigned over the allegations at News International's News of the World tabloid, the paper she edited at the time some of the worst offenses were alleged to have happened.
