NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- News Corp.'s (Stock Quote: NWSA) phone-hacking scandal in the U.K. has snowballed, with 10 people having been arrested in the case and dozens of others being linked to the corruption.
Since the beginning of July, there has been a whirlwind of accusations surrounding Rupert Murdoch's media empire that has plagued British government and law officials. Victims have included a slain schoolgirl, celebrities, politicians and potentially even Sept. 11 terrorist victims.
The scandal has called into question the integrity and future of News Corp. Shares of the company have fallen more than 13% since the investigation, which has been ongoing for years, resurfaced on July 4. With new reports emerging daily, the list of those involved continues to grow.
Here is a look at the major players entwined in News Corp.'s phone-hacking scandal.
Actor Hugh Grant won a court ruling in the hacking scandal, with a High Court judge ordering police to hand over documentation that could reveal his phone messages were intercepted by a private detective working for News of the World.
Grant has been a harsh critic of News of the World amid the hacking scandal and is a member of the Hacked Off lobby group, which has campaigned for a inquiry into illegal eavesdropping by newspapers.
Grant isn't the only celebrity that has allegedly been a target for the now shuttered British tabloid. Sienna Miller settled a phone-hacking suit against the company last month.
The former News of the World reporter at the center of the phone-hacking scandal has been found dead.
Sean Hoare originally alleged that Andy Coulson was aware of phone-hacking by his staff.
According to The Guardian, Hoare was found dead in his home, but police have not confirmed his identity. Authorities have said that the death is currently being treated as unexplained, but it is not believed to be suspicious. Police are currently investigating the incident.
