Spanish soldier found dead in Macedonia hotel

A 29 year old corporal from Baños de la Encina (Jaén) was found dead in a Macedonia hotel room today.

His body was discovered by a group of fellow soldiers also enjoying a few days off from their duties with the 620 man strong Spanish contingent that is part of NATO's KFOR peacekeeping force.

Most of the Spanish contingent is stationed near Istok where they are helping to protect the Serbian population living in the Osojane valley.

The dead soldier belonged to the 12th Armoured Brigade based in El Goloso, near Guadarrama (Madrid).

An autopsy will be performed to confirm cause of death.
