Scotland Yard collars seventh computer-hack suspect

Met tight-lipped after latest Operation Tuleta swoop

A seventh computer-hacking suspect was arrested this morning by detectives who are also probing separate allegations of voicemail interception at Rupert Murdoch's British newspapers.

Scotland Yard is yet to put out an official statement, but officers confirmed to The Register that an unnamed man, whose age and alleged offences were also kept under wraps by the Met, was cuffed at his home in north London today.

"For operational reasons we are not providing further details of this arrest at this time but will release more information in due course," a spokesman at the Yard added.

The arrest is the seventh of its kind under Operation Tuleta - which is probing allegations of criminal breaches of privacy.

El Reg asked Murdoch's News International to comment on this story, but at time of writing it hadn't got back to us. ®
