  • Description

    Turkish authorities have expelled hundreds of Greek-Cypriots from their homes in the northern sector of Cyprus, which has been under Turkish control since last year's armed invasion of the island.

    Last week, about 500 Greek-Cypriots were ordered to leave. On Sunday (29 June) another 300 residents of the seaside resort village of Davlos were also told by Turkish forces that they must leave.

    Most of there refugees are old people and children.They were taken from their homes and delivered to the local United Nations headquarters. They were later transported to Nicosia where many were received by relatives.

    All the refugees were moved south from the Kappas Peninsula. They arrived in Nicosia with only one suitcase each containing personal belongings.They said it was all the luggage they were allowed to carry.

    Turkish-Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash has warned that many more of the 10,000 Greek-Cypriots still living in the north will be moved out unless Turkish-Cypriots living in the south are allowed to settle in the north.

    In Nicosia, the Cyprus Government said that Turkish farming families were being settled on the Mediterranean island. About 8,000 Turks had already arrived and more than 50,000 were still to come.
