James Murdoch to testify again on hacking

LONDON - British lawmakers investigating the country's tabloid phone hacking scandal say James Murdoch will give evidence before their committee for a second time next month.

The House of Commons Culture, Media and Sport committee said Monday that the son and heir-apparent of media mogul Rupert Murdoch will appear Nov. 10.

Rupert Murdoch shut down the tabloid News of the World in July after it was accused of illegally hacking into the voice mails of celebrities, politicians and crime victims in search of scoops.

Both Murdochs denied knowing about the scale of the hacking when they appeared before the panel of lawmakers the same month.
