Tributes to soldier.
THE death of a Northernborn British soldier in southern Iraq was yesterday described as tragic by Martin McGuinness.
Stormont's Sinn Fein Deputy First Minister - who opposed the British Army's presence in the North - expressed his condolences to the family of 25-year-old Lance Corporal Timothy "Daz" Flowers.
He was killed by shrapnel during a rocket or mortar attack on the Basra Palace Army base two days ago.
He added: "As this young soldier is someone who came from my own native city Derry, there is particular sympathy."
