People around the world will take part in charity runs on Friday in tribute to Swedish journalist Kim Wall, who was killed in August 2017 by an inventor she was interviewing for a story.

The events will take place on the one-year anniversary of when Wall was reported missing after setting out on a trip aboard a submarine.

In Sweden, the 'Spring för Kim' (Run for Kim) event will take place in the journalist's birthtown of Trelleborg, and was organized together with her family.
