Danish submarine creator arrested over missing reporter

Swedish journalist Kim Wall is missing after taking a ride on Peter Madsen's homemade sub

Officers did not identify the owner, Peter Madsen, but he appeared on Danish television on Friday to discuss the submarine's sinking.

The decision to rescind Madsen in custody for a further 24 days was made by a judge after a two-hour custody hearing.

The submarine is lying in 7ft of water, but divers have not been able to enter it safely yet, police said.
