London: A person familiar with Rupert Murdoch’s travel plans says he has arrived in London to address his employees amid an ongoing police investigation into tabloids.

The person, who demanded anonymity to discuss Murdoch’s plans, said Thursday the News Corp. chief executive would hold talks with staff Friday.
It follows a new round of arrests last weekend, when five employees at Murdoch’s The Sun tabloid, Britain’s biggest-selling newspaper, were arrested in an inquiry into the alleged payment of bribes to police and defense officials. A total of 10 current and ex-staff at the tabloid have been questioned.
Murdoch shuttered his News of The World tabloid in July amid public outrage at its phone hacking of celebrities, public figures and crime victims.
