Suspect arrested in murder of Bulgarian journalist, report says

On her last TV show, on September 30, Marinova introduced two journalists who were investigating suspected corruption involving European Union funds and said her own show, "Detector", on local television station NTV, would carry out similar investigations. There is already speculation that Marinova's death was linked to her work, and the OSCE representative on freedom of the media has called for Bulgarian authorities to "quickly determine" the reasons behind the attack.

Police said a Romanian citizen of Ukrainian origin was being detained for 24 hours while his alibi is checked.

Marinova's death also drew global calls for a rapid and resolute action, with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urging governments to ensure "accountability" for crimes against journalists such as the Bulgarian journalist's "grisly murder and rape".

On Monday, hundreds of mourners in Bulgaria held vigils for Ms Marinova.

In a statement from the United Nations cultural agency's headquarters in Paris, Azoulay added: "Attacks on journalists erode the fundamental human right to freedom of expression and its corollaries, press freedom and free access to information".
