  • Description

    MORE ANTI-BRITISH DEMONSTRATIONS IN CYPRUS...A RIOT WAS REPORTED TONIGHT (FRIDAY) IN KYRENIA, AND EARLIER NEARLY THREE-THOUSAND GREEK-CYPRIOT SCHOOLCHILDREN PARADED THROUGH NICOSIA'S BUSY STREETS WAVING BANNERS AND SHOUTING "BRITISH GO HOME"...

    ILL FEELING IN CYPRUS WAS STARTED BY THE ARREST OF A BRITISH SERVICEMAN AND ALLEGATIONS -- REPORTED IN THE CYPRIOT PRESS -- THAT HE WAS ACTIVELY HELPING THE TURKISH COMMUNITY.

    BRITISH SERVICE DRIVERS ARE SAID TO HAVE BEEN TOLD TO COOPERATE WITH THE CIVILIAN POLICE AND TO OFFER NO OBSTRUCTION UNTIL IT'S QUITE CLEAR WHETHER THE POLICE HAVE LEGAL RIGHT TO STOP AND SEARCH MILITARY VEHICLES ON THE DIVIDED ISLAND.

    (TONIGHT THE CYPRUS GOVERNMENT RELEASED NINE TURKISH CYPRIOTS SEIZED AT N NICOSIA AIRPORT TWO WEEKS AGO. A SPOKESMAN CLAIMED THEY'D BEEN RECRUITED IN LONDON FOR THE TURKISH CYPRIOT FORCES, BUT HAD NOW "REPENTED". THEY WERE TO BE HELPED TO RETURN TO LONDON.)
