The coffin with the body of Josip Briski, the Croatian soldier killed in a terrorist attack in Kabul, Afghanistan on Wednesday, arrived at Zagreb's airport aboard a NATO plane on Friday morning, where it was welcomed with the highest military and state honours.

The US plane left Bagram, Afghanistan during the night and was seen off by the commander of NATO's Resolute Support mission, General Austin Scott Miller, whereby the highest honour was shown Briski, the Croatian Defence Ministry said.

Present at Zagreb's Franjo Tudjman Airport were Briski's family, President and Armed Forces Supreme Commander Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, Defence Minister Damir Krsticevic, Armed Forces Chief-of-Staff General Mirko Sundov, other senior Defence Ministry and army officials, and representatives of the US, France, Germany, the Czech Republic and Albania.

A commemoration will be held at the Defence Ministry at 11 a.m. Briski is expected to be buried on Saturday.
