Reading axed paper, Murdoch arrives to face UK crisis
LONDON, July 10 |
LONDON, July 10 (Reuters) - Media mogul Rupert Murdoch arrived in London on Sunday to tackle a crisis that has spiralled beyond a phone-hacking scandal at one of his papers and threatened to scupper a multi-billion-dollar deal.
Murdoch was photographed reading a copy of the last ever edition of News of the World, which his News Corp empire axed just a few days ago, as he swept into the company's Wapping headquarters by car.
The Australian-born American, one of the world's most influential men, has flown in to personally oversee his company's handling of a crisis in which senior executives are implicated. (Reporting by Paul Sandle; Writing by Jodie Ginsberg; Editing by Louise Ireland)
