WILLMAR, Minn. (AP) — The body of a Minnesota soldier killed in Afghanistan is coming home.

The body of Army Pfc. Ryane (RYE'-uhn) Clark is scheduled to arrive at 12:30 p.m. Thursday at Willmar Municipal Airport.

The West Central Tribune reports a procession escorting Clark's body will leave the airport about 1 p.m. and travel through Willmar and Spicer on its way to his hometown of New London.

Clark died last week after his unit was attacked by insurgents. The 22-year-old was based at Fort Bragg, N.C., and had been in Afghanistan since December.

His funeral is at 2 p.m. Sunday in the gymnasium of New London-Spicer High School.
