Somalilandsun- A British teenager has been sentenced to eight years in prison over the stabbing death of a British soldier during a nightclub brawl in Cyprus.

David Lee Collins, 18, from London, was stabbed to death after a fight broke out in a nightclub in the popular resort of Ayia Napa last November.

The court said that Mohamed Abdulkadir Osman, originally from Somalia, but living in London, was provoked and ‘lost self-control’ when he pulled out a switchblade and fatally stabbed Mr Collins.

A man has been jailed for eight years for the manslaughter of a soldier, who was from Manchester, in Cyprus, the Ministry of Defence said.

The three-judge bench said that Collins had confronted Osman and his friends after being punched by an unidentified nightclub patron, raising a clenched fist at the group and telling them ‘Are you bad men?’ – a phrase which the court said is interpreted in Britain as a challenge to a fight.
