LONDON — After days of mounting pressure from politicians and shareholders, Rebekah Brooks, the embattled chief executive of Rupert Murdoch’s British newspaper operations, announced her resignation on Friday in another stunning blow to Mr. Murdoch’s once all-powerful empire, which is now under investigation in Britain and the United States.

 
Her resignation came a day after Mr. Murdoch himself, the chairman of News Corporation, and his son James reversed themselves and said they would testify before a parliamentary panel probing the cascading scandal over phone hacking that has forced the closure of The News of the World tabloid and the collapse of a $12 billion bid to assume full control of Britain’s biggest satellite broadcaster.
