He described the deceased as fun loving and open minded.
" He was a loving person. He loved to live and was looking forward to a bright future," he said if the 26 year old.
The body was discovered through thorough finger print searching.
The KDF has yet to announce how many of its men died in the attack, with reports stating that the likelihood is there will be no announcement soon on the matter.
