Rebekah Brooks cleared in U.K. phone-hacking trial

LONDON — Former British tabloid editor Rebekah Brooks has been cleared in a London court of all charges related to a phone-hacking trial that raised serious questions about the news-gathering conduct of journalists working for the media empire of Rupert Murdoch.

But Andy Coulson, her former colleague and an ex-tabloid editor himself, has been found guilty of one charge of conspiring to hack phones. Coulson was previously British Prime Minister David Cameron's communications chief.
