Danish submarine owner arrested over journalist's death

Peter Madsen. Denmark's navy says that Madsen's privately built submarine that had been feared missing in Danish waters has been found and the crew is safe. The navy says that the 40-ton nearl

Danish media said Mr Madsen had been charged with negligent manslaughter and would be detained for 24 days, following his court appearance on Saturday.

According to a statement Wall's family shared with CPJ today, the 30-year-old Swedish-born journalist, who was based in NY and Beijing, was working on a story about inventor Peter Madsen when she went missing.

Peter Madsen was arrested Friday on preliminary manslaughter charges after his 40-ton, almost 18-meter-long (60-foot-long) ship, named the UC3 Nautilus, sank off Denmark's eastern coast.

Ms Wall's boyfriend had called out the authorities after the submarine failed to return after she had boarded it on Thursday.

Copenhagen Police have appealed for witnesses who might have been at Refshaleøen at around 19:00 and 22:30 - the times Madsen claims his submarine left and returned.

Peter Madsen, 46, denies the killing, saying he had dropped the woman off in Copenhagen before the sinking.

A salvage vessel, the Vina, was Saturday working on raising the submarine, which was seven meters (23 feet) under water off Copenhagen's south island of Dragoer. Two helicopters and three ships combed the sea from Copenhagen to the Baltic Sea island of Bornholm.

The Navy said the US3 Nautilus was initially seen sailing normally but sank shortly afterwards in Koge Bay, south of Copenhagen.

U removes Sharad Yadav as leader of party in Rajya Sabha
Speaking to ANI , MP Vashistha Narayan Singh said, "This was important and was done due to Sharad Yadav's anti-party activities". Nitish, however, swore-in as the Bihar Chief Minister the very next day with Sushil Modi as his Deputy Chief Minister.

"Whether the woman was on board the submarine at the time of her disappearance is unclear", police said.

Footage aired on Denmark's TV 2 channel showed him getting off what appeared to be a private boat and making a thumbs-up sign as he walked away.

Madsen told authorities he had dropped her off back at their departure point at about 10:30 p.m.

"I am fine, but sad because Nautilus went down".

There was no trace of the woman, however, and police launched a search.

When asked why he did not respond to radio contact earlier in the day, Madsen told them he had had technical problems, Danish navy spokesman Anders Damgaard told The Associated Press news agency.

"It took about 30 seconds for Nautilus to sink, and I couldn't close any hatches or anything", he said.
