A man has been arrested on suspicion of causing the death of his 13 month old niece in Carboneras.
The reason for the death has yet to be announced, as a forensic autopsy has yet to be carried out.
The father is a local man, married to a Romanian firl, and his brother told journalists that the arrested uncle had been babysitting the baby and her three year old sibling. It seems the baby had been ill for several days, but had not been taken to a doctor until the mother returned.
The case has been referred to the courts at Vera, and three days of mourning have been announced in Carboneras.
