British police say two men have been arrested as part of an investigation into phone hacking at one of Britain's best-selling tabloids. A criminal inquiry into phone tapping at the News of The World was recently reopened amid fresh allegations from celebrities, such as Sienna Miller, who have accused the paper of illegal hacking and harassment.

Metropolitan Police say two men -- ages 50 and 42 -- were arrested at separate police stations in London on suspicion of unlawfully intercepting voicemail messages. They declined to name the men, who remain in custody for questioning.
