London, Feb 13 — Six former News Of The World (NoTW) journalists were arrested Wednesday over phone hacking scandal, police said.

Scotland Yard detectives from the Operation Weeting inquiry said they were looking into a suspected conspiracy that took place between 2005-06.

Three men and three women were arrested this morning and are being interviewed at police stations in London and Cheshire, Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

These individuals worked at the now defunct newspaper the News of the World and two are still employed as staff journalists for The Sun.

The arrests were carried out as part of a fresh line of inquiry, separate from allegations under the existing Operation Weeting investigation, the Metropolitan Police said.

All of them were arrested on "suspicion of conspiracy to intercept telephone communications".
