LONDON (AP) - Rupert Murdoch's News International says that its
new tabloid will be launched next Sunday.

In a letter to staff sent Sunday, News International CEO Tom Mockridge said that "The Sun on Sunday" would be published for the first time next weekend.

The Sun on Sunday replaces the top-selling News of The World, which was closed in July after revelations that members of its staff had routinely hacked into phones and paid bribes to score exclusives.

The ensuing scandal stunned Britain's establishment and led to dozens of arrests and resignations.

News International is a subsidiary of Murdoch's New York-based News Corp.
