LONDON (AP) — A prosecutor says former News of the World editor Andy Coulson sent an email telling his news editor to "do his phone" in relation to an alleged victim of phone hacking. Prosecutor Andrew Edis told a jury Friday the instruction referred to Calum Best, son of late soccer star George Best, who was the subject of intense interest by the now-defunct Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid. Edis is continuing opening arguments in the case against former News of the World editors Coulson and Rebekah Brooks, and six others on hacking-related charges. All deny the allegations. The prosecutor focused Friday on the alleged role of former news editor Ian Edmondson, one of the accused. Edis said Edmondson told a private investigator to access the voicemails of actors Jude Law, Sienna Miller and others.
