Brooks, Coulson charged over alleged payments to officials

Rupert Murdoch's protege Rebekah Brooks will be charged with conspiracy over alleged illegal payments to a Ministry of Defence employee, Britain's Crown Prosecution Service said Tuesday.

In a separate case, Andy Coulson, another former Murdoch editor who went on to work for Prime Minister David Cameron, faces charges of conspiring to make illegal payments to officials for information relating to the royal family, the CPS said.
