– Ministry of Defence spokesman
It is with great sadness that the MoD must confirm that a soldier from 2nd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers has died in an incident in Cyprus.
An investigation is being conducted by Cyprus police and it would be inappropriate to comment any further. The family has been informed and our thoughts are with them.
Three British tourists have been remanded in custody on suspicion of fatally stabbing a 19-year-old off-duty British soldier at a nightclub in Ayia Napa.
