Andy Coulson, Prime Minister's David Cameron's former media chief and ex-editor of one of Rupert Murdoch's British titles, was found guilty of being part of a phone-hacking conspiracy by a London court on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Rebekah Brooks, the former boss of News Corp.'s British newspaper arm, was found not guilty of being part of an illegal conspiracy at the Murdoch tabloid, the now defunct News of the World - a paper she edited from 2000 to 2003 - to hack into phones and make illegal payments.

Brooks was accused of being complicit in journalists' hacking phones to find exclusive stories at the tabloid.
