South African police on Saturday said they had arrested a third man in connection with the murder of a 28-year-old Swedish woman on honeymoon in Cape Town.

"The suspect will appear... on Monday the 22nd (of November) on charges of hijacking and murder", said Frederick van Wyk, a spokesman for Western Cape police.

Two other men, both aged 26, were arrested earlier this week and will appear in court soon.

Anni Dewani was kidnapped last Saturday after armed men hijacked the taxi she and her new British husband Shrien Dewani were travelling in on the outskirts of Cape Town.

The hijackers released the 31-year-old husband, but his wife's body was later found in an impoverished township neighbourhood.
