Henry Chu reports:
Prosecutors announced criminal charges Tuesday against eight people in connection with Britain’s phone-hacking scandal, including a onetime confidant of media baron Rupert Murdoch and a former senior aide to Prime Minister David Cameron.
The eight suspects are accused of illegally tapping into the cellphones of celebrities, politicians and others in the public spotlight, including a teenage kidnap victim who was later found slain.
