Missing journalist killed in Danish submarine accident

International Editor

The owner of a home-made submarine has told Danish police that a missing journalist died in an accident on board, then he buried her at sea. Thirty-year-old reporter Kim Wall disappeared more than a week ago after going on board the vessel on an assignment. The owner, Peter Madsen, was arrested hours after his submarine sank off Denmark’s eastern coast. He originally claimed he’d dropped Ms Wall off in Copenhagen harbour.
