Brit Stabbed To Death In Barbados: Man Held

Police have arrested a man in Barbados after a former British soldier was stabbed to death.

Brian Mulligan, 28, was knifed in the chest early Sunday near St Lawrence Gap, in Christ Church.

The father of two from London had served in the British military for eight years until 2012, including a tour of Iraq.

He became an engineer after leaving the military and went to work on the Caribbean island around two months ago.

The Royal Barbados Police Force said one man had been arrested on Tuesday over the stabbing.

"A man is currently in police custody assisting with the investigation in relation to the unnatural death of Brian Mulligan," said Inspector David Welch.

"This man was held on Tuesday June 17, 2014."
