A Fijian naval officer died in Iraq last week after he suffered a heart attack.

Ordinary Seaman Timoci Bola, 32, of Daku-i-beqa died while on duty in Iraq. His death becomes the first Fiji military fatality in Iraq this year and the third RFMF Fijian soldier to die in Iraq since their first deployment in 2004.

This was confirmed to FijiLive by Fiji Military Forces Land Force Commander, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga.

His body arrived into the country yesterday and a full military funeral will be held tomorrow at his Kinoya home in Suva.

Bola had served in the RFMF for five years and is survived by his wife and two children.
