Kiwi soldier took his own life because of bullying over his sexuality...


Reports are surfacing a New Zealand soldier took his own life after confessing his feelings for a junior officer.

The Sunday Star-Times reports the family of 26-year-old Corporal Douglas Hughes - who was on his second tour of duty to the war-torn country - believe his death was "preventable."
They say he was bullied because of his sexuality before his death last April.
In findings released on Thursday, Coroner Gordon Matenga ruled Corporal Hughes' death was self-inflicted.
Readers seeking support and information about suicide prevention can contact Lifeline's 24-hour telephone counselling service on 0800 543 354.
