A foreign woman was found dead in her apartment in Vesturbær, Reykjavík last night. Two men were in the apartment when police arrived and were arrested on the scene.
The victim and one of the men were both of foreign origin, while the other man was Icelandic. The three individuals knew each other, and the foreign man and victim lived together, according to the police.
Both men are currently being interrogated as murder suspects and will likely be taken into custody later today. Chief superintendent Grímur Grímsson claims that a weapon or something similar had been used.
"We got a report at 10 pm last night of a serious bodily assault. Police arrived on the spot and a seriously injured woman was moved to the emergency ward. And two men were put under arrest, suspected of being responsible for the injuries the woman sustained. She was pronounced dead at the emergency ward."
The Icelandic police may hold suspects for up to twenty-four hours, after which they must be taken into custody or released.
