British police on Thursday arrested a journalist from Rupert Murdoch's market-leading tabloid The Sun on suspicion of computer hacking, its publisher said.
"Officers from Operation Tuleta arrested a man at his home in north London at about 6:30 am (0530 GMT) this morning," a Scotland Yard spokesman told AFP, saying that no further details were immediately available.
Media named the journalist as Sun reporter Rhodri Phillips.
"A journalist from The Sun was arrested this morning," a spokeswoman told AFP.
The arrest is the seventh as part of Operation Tuleta.
Tuleta is one of three linked inquiries sparked by the phone-hacking scandal at Murdoch's now defunct News of the World weekly tabloid.
The operation is being run alongside Operation Weeting, an investigation into phone hacking at British newspapers, and Operation Elveden, into inappropriate payments by journalists to police and public officials.
More than 60 people have been arrested in the three investigations, including Rebekah Brooks, a former top aide to Murdoch and friend of British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Cameron's former media chief Andy Coulson.
Australian-born tycoon Murdoch closed the 168-year-old News of the World in July 2011 after revelations that it had accessed the voicemail of a murdered schoolgirl, as well as dozens of public figures.
