News Corporation chiefs Rupert and James Murdoch and former executive Rebekah Brooks will be quizzed by MPs later about the phone-hacking scandal.

The trio are expected to be questioned over what they knew about phone hacking at the News of the World and whether there was a cover-up.

It is the first time Rupert Murdoch has faced MPs in over 40 years of media ownership in the UK.

Two senior police figures who quit over the scandal also face MPs' questions.

The committee hearing is the latest in a series of dramatic developments in the phone-hacking saga.

* Investigations are continuing into the death of former NoW journalist Sean Hoare, who made allegations of phone hacking at the paper, after his body was found on Monday
* The Sun's website has been targeted by hackers Lulz Security and readers redirected to a hoax story about Rupert Murdoch
* David Cameron will return to the UK - cutting short a trip to Africa - to prepare for a Commons debate on the hacking scandal on Wednesday
* News Corporation has denied reports it was holding a meeting to discuss a replacement for Rupert Murdoch as CEO of the company

Mrs Brooks quit as chief executive of News International - the UK arm of News Corporation - on Friday. On Sunday she was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to intercept communications and corruption.
Historic hearing

Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson resigned on Sunday and Assistant Commissioner John Yates quit on Monday over the hiring of former NoW journalist Neil Wallis, now alleged to have been involved in phone-hacking, as a PR consultant for the force.

Both former officers are due to give evidence to the Commons home affairs committee later.
