A deep-water search for the body of a one-year-old girl, believed murdered by her father, is continuing off Tenerife in the Canary Islands.

An investigating judge alleges Anna Gimeno Zimmermann and her six-year-old sister Olivia were killed by their father Tomás to “cause the greatest pain imaginable” to their mother.

Olivia’s body was found in the sea on Thursday, in a bag tied to an anchor.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said the whole country was in shock.

There have been nationwide protests against domestic violence, with hundreds of people – especially women and children – holding dolls and soft toys in memory of the young girls.

Anna and Olivia were reported missing on 27 April, after Mr Gimeno arranged to spend the afternoon with them. He is also missing, presumed dead by the Spanish Civil Guard.

A nine-page report by an investigating magistrate was released on Saturday and details have been reported in the Spanish press. Based on the police investigation, it outlines what Mr Gimeno, 37, is alleged to have done leading up to his daughters’ deaths, and afterwards.
