LONDON (AP) -

Former News of the World editor Andy Coulson has been convicted of phone hacking, but fellow editor Rebekah Brooks was acquitted after a monthslong trial centering on illegal activity at the heart of Rupert Murdoch's newspaper empire.

A jury on Tuesday unanimously found Coulson guilty of conspiring to intercept communications. Brooks was acquitted of that charge and of counts of bribing officials and obstructing police.
