Three teenage British tourists will face manslaughter charges when they go on trial in Cyprus next year for allegedly killing a young British soldier during a nightclub brawl in Ayia Napa.

Mohamed Abdulkadir Osman, 19, and two 17-year-olds, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared in court yesterday but did not have to answer any charges.

The trio, from London, will be asked to enter a plea when the case goes to trial at Larnaca criminal court on 24 January.

Famagusta district court will decide today whether they will remain in custody until then.
