Danish submarine owner arrested over missing journalist
Submarine owner and inventor Peter Madsen speaks to police
Peter Madsen was rescued on Friday but the missing woman was unaccounted for
A Danish submarine owner has been charged over the death of a Swedish female journalist who had been on board his vessel before it sank.
Peter Madsen, 46, denies wrongdoing, saying he had dropped the woman off in Copenhagen before the sinking.
The reporter’s partner raised the alarm in the early hours of Friday when she did not return from what was supposed to be a short journey on the vessel.
It was later spotted but sank on Friday morning and Mr Madsen was rescued.
There was no trace of the woman, however, and police launched a search. She has still not been found.
The missing woman has been identified as Kim Wall, a 30-year-old New York-based freelance journalist who has written for the New York Times, the Guardian and Vice Magazine.
