Morocco's king has revoks his pardon of a Spanish paedophile, after hundreds riot in front of parliament to protest the decision.

Full Story:

Morocco's king revoked his pardon of a Spanish child rapist on Sunday, after his decision to free the man sparked violent protests.

The paedophile, identified by the Spanish Foreign Ministry as Daniel Galvan Vina, has been serving a 30-year sentence for raping and filming at least 11 children, aged 4 to 15.

A statement from the palace carried by the state news agency on Sunday said the king revoked the pardon, taking into consideration the gravity of the crimes committed.

The statement also said Morocco's justice minister would discuss the matter with his Spanish counterpart.

Galvan left the country on Thursday and Justice Minister Mustapha Ramid says the Spaniard is banned from Morocco.

On Friday, outraged protesters demanded that the pardon be revoked, and that Galvan be brought back to the North African kingdom and imprisoned.

Galvan is one of 48 jailed Spaniards pardoned by King Mohamed the Sixth on Tuesday, at the request of Spain's King Juan Carlos, who visited Morocco last month.
