Danish submarine owner accused of causing Swedish journalist's death

Amateur submarine inventor whose craft sank off Denmark is arrested on suspicion of KILLING journalist who vanished after boarding the vessel

The Danish owner of a homemade submarine that sank south of Copenhagen has been arrested on suspicion of murdering a Swedish journalist who was a passenger on the vessel.

Madsen "told us he had technical problems" when asked to explain why the submarine failed to respond to radio contact earlier in the day, Damgaard said.

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

The inventor told authorities Friday that he dropped Wall off on an island in Copenhagen's harbor before the vessel sank.

Nautilus, named after the ship from the classic science fiction novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, was built by Mr Madsen after raising $200,000 (£154,000) online. "I would very much like to express myself", he said after the preliminary charges were read.

Madsen's defence lawyer, Bettina Hald Engmark, said her client maintains his innocence.

However, Guam's security agency has issued a fact sheet with advice on what residents should do in the event of a nuclear attack. North Korea said earlier this week it would complete plans to launch missiles into the waters near Guam by mid-August.

Isbak says the inventor "then climbed down inside the submarine and there was then some kind of air flow coming up and the submarine started to sink".

Her family says the 30-year-old Sweden-born journalist lives in NY and Peking and had studied at the Sorbonne university in Paris and the London School of Economics.

The submarine, UC3 Nautilus, is one of three constructed by 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.

Madsen's actions are being scrutinized because he is being detained in the disappearance of a Swedish journalist who had been onboard his submarine Thursday night.

"It took about 30 seconds for Nautilus to sink, and I couldn't close any hatches or anything", he said. The navy says that the 40-ton, almost 18-meter-long (60-foot-long) submarine with at least two people on board had been "found sailing" south of Copenhagen.

According to a timeline compiled by police, on Thursday at about 7 p.m. local time (1700 UTC), the sub departed Refshale Island, a former industrial shipyard transformed into a creative hub, for what was supposed to be a short trip. Half an hour later "the submarine suddenly sank and the owner was subsequently rescued on a private motorboat sailing him in port".
