Watch: Protests in Spain after 6 year old girl is found dead dumped in a bag at sea
In Spain, thousands are protesting against domestic violence while rescue workers carry out a search off the coast of Tenerife ,for a one-year-old girl. This comes two after her six-year-old sister was found drowned face down dumped in a sports bag in the sea.
The girl’s father is suspected of being the mastermind behind the disappearance of his siblings: 6-year-old Olivia and one-year-old Anna. He had taken his children but failed to take them back to their mother as agreed at the end of April. Meanwhile, the Police are also searching for him.
Yesterday, a minute of silence was observed for the murdered girl and her sister who is still lost.
Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said Spain was in shock and stood completely four square behind families experiencing great pain due to domestic violence. He said there were still people in the country who did not recognize the existence of domestic violence.
The girl’s body was found Thursday afternoon in a basket tied to an anchor where her father’s boat was. A similar bag, which was empty, was found next to it.
