    Two more senior journalists from Rupert Murdoch's defunct British tabloid the News of the World have been charged with phone-hacking, prosecutors said on Wednesday, weeks after the paper's ex-editor was jailed for the crime. The Crown Prosecution Service said, Neil Wallis, the paper's ex-deputy editor, and former features editor Jules Stenson, have been charged with conspiracy to intercept voicemails on mobile phones of well-known figures or people close to them. The charges come after Andy Coulson, who edited the paper from 2003 until 2007 before later working as Prime Minister David Cameron's media chief, was jailed for 18 months for encouraging staff to hack phones in a bid to get exclusive stories.
