A man has pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of a British soldier in Cyprus, a court official has confirmed.
Fusilier David Lee Collins, 19, from Manchester, was stabbed to death after a fight broke out in a nightclub in the popular resort of Ayia Napa last November.
Mohammed Abdulkadir Osman, 19, admitted manslaughter at a court hearing in Larnaca, Photini Larcou, registrar of the court said. She added that two other teenagers were acquitted of all charges.
Mr Collins, from the 2nd Battalion, Royal Regiment of Fusiliers, was said to be stationed at an Army base in the Dhekelia area of the island.
He was off-duty with three other soldiers when they became involved in a brawl with three British holidaymakers in the early hours of the morning.
He was stabbed the day before he was due to fly out to Afghanistan.
