A man has been arrested for the fatal shooting of British toddler Alistair Grimason in Turkey.
Daimi Akyuz is in police custody
Police in the city of Izmir confirmed that they arrested "prime suspect" Daimi Akyuz on Monday night.
The 32-year-old is reported to have confessed to camera, saying he regrets the death of Alistair and will mourn for him all of his life.
Two-year-old Alistair, from East Kilbride, in Scotland, died after a gunfight broke out at a cafe in the Turkish resort of Foca on 7 July.
The toddler had been with his Turkish-born mother Ozlem and his grandmother as they enjoyed a meal during a family holiday.
Alistair was asleep in his pram when a stray bullet pierced his heart, killing him instantly.
Police arrested a man in connection with the incident but said they had launched a hunt for Mr Akyuz.
Alistair's father, David Grimason, said he was pleased Mr Akyuz had been arrested but
that nothing would ease the pain of losing his only child.
Mr Grimason said international coverage of a petition he started to campaign for the tightening of Turkish gun laws had helped put pressure on the authorities to find Mr Akyuz.

He said: "After the petition started the police went on television in Turkey
and said they would put more people on the case.
"Just over a week ago they said they would catch him within a week and now
they've caught him so it looks as if the petition may have helped."
Mr Grimason said he would like to travel to Turkey to witness the legal
proceedings once Mr Akyuz has been charged in connection with Alistair's death.
He had already planned to travel to Turkey at the end of this month to hand
over the petition which now has nearly 30,000 signatures.
Another man, Ali Bektas, was also killed in the shoot-out which led to
Alistair's death while two other men were injured.
Mr Akyuz will also face charges in relation to these three men, according to the
Turkish Embassy spokesman.
Mr Grimason said news of Mr Akyuz's arrest had left him rather shaken adding that
all he and his wife could think about was their son.
"It's always on your mind every minute of the day, you think about the things
he's missing out on.
"He made us proud and kept us going and we don't have that anymore."
On Tuesday morning, a spokesman for the Turkish Embassy in London said: "The prime suspect Daimi Akyuz has been arrested and he will be charged with murder.
"He will be taken to court and the prosecutor will investigate the incident."
