Saw found in sea as Danish police continue search for body parts in submarine case

Divers have recovered a saw from the sea off Copenhagen and forensic investigators are checking whether it was used to dismember the body of a Swedish journalist, police in Denmark have said.

The capital's police investigator Jens Moeller Jensen said today they were still searching for the arms of 30-year-old Kim Wall.

Ms Wall's torso was found on a southern Copenhagen coast on August 21, and her decapitated head, legs and clothes were found at sea last week.

Ms Wall was last seen on a home-made submarine with inventor Peter Madsen, who is being held in custody.

He has said she died after being accidentally hit by a heavy hatch in the submarine's tower.

Police have found no fractures to Ms Wall's skull.
