The High Court of England and Wales grants the Attorney General permission to bring a case against "The Sun" and the "Daily Mirror" for the way they reported aspects of the hunt for the killer of Joanna Yeates.
"The Sun" reports that the CIA informed UK intelligence agencies that British-born ISIL activist and recruiter Sally Jones was killed in a U.S. drone strike in June along with her 12-year-old son while they were fleeing Raqqa in Syria.
Entertainment manager Louis Walsh seeks access to documents which allegedly show that Murdoch's tabloid "The Sun" paid €700 to a man who made, in a high profile case, what turned out to be a false sexual assault accusation against Walsh. The senior counsel for Walsh tells Ireland's High Court: ""The Sun" directed the operation to take out Louis Walsh as a public person."
Rupert Murdoch gives evidence to the Leveson inquiry, claiming former British Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown "declared war" on his organisation after "The Sun" newspaper came out in support of the Conservatives in 2009, an allegation denied by Brown.
A police officer and four journalists associated with British tabloid "The Sun" are arrested in relation to the News International phone hacking scandal, by detectives investigating payments made to police by journalists. The BBC understands the four journalists are ex-deputy editor Fergus Shanahan, ex-managing editor Graham Dudman, crime editor Mike Sullivan and head of news Chris Pharo.
Christopher Jefferies, an early suspect in the investigation into the murder of Joanna Yeates, accepts "substantial" libel damages from eight British newspapers after they published details of his private life. "The Sun" and "Daily Mirror" are also fined for contempt of court in their reporting of the investigation.
Both "The Sun" and "Daily Mirror" tabloid newspapers are accused of being in contempt of court for publishing articles about the arrest of Christopher Jefferies in relation to the murder of Joanna Yeates; Jefferies was later released without charge. British Attorney General Dominic Grieve is seeking to bring charges against the newspapers. Judges will make a decision on the case at a later date.
