A Turkish dad has been arrested for beating his toddler daughter to death when she refused to eat her meal and then threw it on the floor when he shouted at her.

Little Elif Hazal, who was just one and a half years old, died in hospital after her dad Mehmet Yilmaz, 30, reportedly beat her to death after she refused to eat in the Guneykent Neighborhood of the Turkish Gaziantep province on Sunday, 24th October.

The news site Yenicag reports that the little girl’s mum, Duygu Yilmaz, 27, was in hospital nursing Elif’s sibling who she gave birth to a month ago and Elif was left in the care of her dad.
