The body of the Norwegian prisoner found dead in the Democratic Republic of Congo last month has been returned home to Norway, Dagbladet has reported.
The coffin was delivered to his parents' home in Vegårshei, south of Oslo. 
Tjostolv Moland, a former soldier, was found dead in his cell on  August 18 after spending four years in a Congo jail for allegedly murdering his Congolese driver.  
Moland's cellmate Joshua French, who was also found guilty of the murder, remains in prison in the Congo.
