UK citizens Brett and Naghemeh King, who have a 5-year-old son Ashya, were arrested in Spain after British authorities alerted Interpol that they had removed their son from a UK hospital without permission. 

Ashya has a medulloblastoma tumor in his brain.  Ashya’s parents believe that the best course of treatment for the cancer is proton beam therapy.  They traveled to Spain to sell their vacation home in an attempt to raise funds for the alternative treatment. 

British Authorities have had the parents arrested and detained for at least 72 hours.
