Anglican leaders sell Murdoch firm's shares

LONDON -- The Church of England has sold its shares in Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. over its handling of a phone hacking scandal at one of its newspapers.

Anglican leaders said in a statement this week that they were not satisfied that News Corp. was likely to show a commitment to reform its business practices following evidence of illegal eavesdropping at the defunct News of the World newspaper.

Church official Andrew Brown said the decision to sell the $3 million in News Corp. shares followed a year of inconclusive dialogue between News Corp. executives and members of the church's ethical investment committee.
