Rupert Murdoch's newest newspaper has launched with a familiar mix of celebrity news, scantily clad women, and defiant political rhetoric.

The Sun's Sunday edition hit the stands two weeks after five employees of the tabloid were arrested in an inquiry into the alleged payment of bribes to police and defense officials.

The new Sunday tabloid replaces The News of the World, which closed in July after revelations that the paper had routinely hacked into the phones of those in the public eye, including a missing schoolgirl Milly Dowler.

In a defiant editorial column, The Sun Sunday said the scandal had been "a sobering experience for our entire industry" and said that all its arrested journalists are innocent until proven guilty.
