British police investigating phone hacking and police bribery by the defunct tabloid News of the World have arrested a 10th person in the case Sunday, a 43-year-old woman.

Sky News and other British media are reporting the woman is Rebekah Brooks, who stepped down Friday as head of Rupert Murdoch’s British newspapers.

Police would not confirm her identity.

Police said the woman arrested at a London police station at noon Sunday by appointment. She is being questioned on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications and suspicion of corruption.

Police have already arrested nine people connected to Murdoch’s British media empire over allegations that the News of the World hacked into the phone voice mails of hundreds of celebrities, politicians, rival journalists and even murder victims. No one has yet been charged.

The latest arrested comes just two days before Brooks is due to answer questions from a parliamentary committee investigating the hacking. Rupert Murdoch and his son James are also due to give evidence. [Copyright 2011 National Public Radio]
