Danish divers find arm in search for Kim Wall's remains
Prosecutors say Peter Madsen killed Kim Wall after she went to interview him, then dismembered her and threw her remains into the sea from where several parts have been retrieved

Danish police said Tuesday divers had recovered an arm in waters off Copenhagen, where the dismembered head, torso and legs of Swedish journalist Kim Wall were found in October.
"We have not yet determined if it is a right or left arm, or to whom the arm belongs. But we are working on the assumption that it is linked to the submarine case," Copenhagen police inspector Jens Moller Jensen said in a statement.
Danish inventor Peter Madsen, 46, in October admitted dismembering the corpse of Swedish journalist Kim Wall.
She vanished after interviewing him on board his homemade submarine on August 10, and her body parts were later found in Koge Bay off Copenhagen.
Madsen is suspected of murdering Wall, but he has denied the allegations and said he does not know how she died. He has told police she died below deck while he was up on deck.
Prosecutors have previously said they believe Madsen killed Wall as part of a sexual fantasy, then dismembered her body and threw the parts into the sea.
The arm is to undergo a forensic examination on Wednesday.
