Tributes to soldier.

Byline: By DAVID COLLINS

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."
