A 40-year-old British man has apparently been arrested in Spain for killing a German tourist he caught filming his young daughter with an iPad.

According to the Evening Standard, Kainth Devinder, 40, attacked Sandro Rottman, 43, at Spinnaker restaurant in Sotogrande. The Evening Standard reported that Rottman had been charged days before with possession of child pornography.

A spokeswoman for Spain's Civil Guard told the Press Association:

The discussion apparently began because of alleged recordings that the victim was making of the aggressor's daughter.

When he saw what was happening, he took the tablet off him, saw the recordings, threw the device to the ground and attacked him.

A spokesman for the Foreign Office told BuzzFeed News:

We are urgently investigating reports of the arrest of a British national in the Cadiz area in southern Spain. We stand ready to provide consular assistance if requested.

This is a developing story.
