One person has died and at least one other injured after a man wielding a machete carried out attacks at two churches in southern Spain.

According to the interior ministry the suspect first entered the church of San Isidro in Algeciras where the priest was attacked and seriously injured.

The alleged attacker then went to a second church where a verger was stabbed to death.

The suspect was disarmed and arrested shortly afterwards.

A statement by the Ministry of the Interior said: "Just after 19:00 local time (18:00 GMT) this evening, a man entered the church of San Isidro in Algeciras, where, armed with a machete, he attacked the priest, leaving him seriously wounded."
