LONDON (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Prime Minister David Cameron faced lawmakers Wednesday morning at an emergency parliament session on Britain’s spreading hacking and bribery investigation.

This comes a day after media mogul Rupert Murdoch refused to accept responsibility for wrongdoing in the scandal that's threatening his media empire.

Cameron's former communications chief, a former editor at the now-defunct tabloid "News of the World," is among several people who have been arrested in the scandal.

Scotland Yard said Tuesday night that the protester who threw a plate of shaving foam at Rupert Murdoch during Tuesday's hearing has been charged with a public order offense.
