British businessman Shrien Dewani has been arrested on suspicion of conspiring to have his Swedish bride murdered while honeymooning in South Africa, police said Wednesday.

The 30-year-old surrendered himself at a police station in Bristol, southwest England, late Tuesday and was detained by London's Metropolitan Police acting on behalf of the South African authorities.

He is accused of conspiring with others to murder Anni Dewani, 28, who was killed after the car in which the pair was travelling was reportedly hijacked on the outskirts of Cape Town on November 13.
