A argument erupted between Norwegian and Swedish tourists in Spain last Saturday and one man was killed.

According to Wednesday's Expressen, the two tourists were in a bar drinking and were "heavily influenced by alcohol". They appeared not to know each other and when the Norwegian man hit the Swede he sank unconscious to the ground.

He died in Alicante hospital and Expressen said that "nobody could explain what the fight was about". The Norwegian turned himself in to police last Sunday and has been charged with manslaughter.
