LONDON (AP) - Police investigating Britain's phone hacking scandal say they have arrested a woman on suspicion of money laundering offenses.

Metropolitan police said the 42-year-old was arrested Monday morning after being asked to go to a police station in south west London.

She was arrested as part of "Operation Weeting," the police name for their investigation into phone hacking at Rupert Murdoch's News International.

Former News International executive Rebekah Brooks and her husband Charlie were arrested in the same investigation in March.

2. suspicion of money laundering offenses

should prove interesting.

Be interesting when whoever actually gets charged with all these offences finally get to trial. They've already that when the first trial starts there will be complete lockdown on evidence to help prevent other mistrials due to sub judice.

3. Blair looks like he's about to say "Tsk."

Disconcerting, to say the least.
