  • Description

    In Cyprus last Thursday (23 February), the Turkish-Cypriot leader, Mr. Rauf Denktash, laid the blame for the disastrous outcome of the Egyptian commando attack at Cyprus's Larnaca airport on the government of Cyprus President Spyros Kyprianou. Fifteen Egyptians were killed in the attack when they were fired upon by the Cypriot National Guard. The Egyptians were attempting to free hostages from a commandeered plane. The hostages were taken to the plane by two Palestinian gunmen after they had killed an Egyptian newspaper editor at Nicosia's Hilton Hotel. Mr. Denktash is president of the Federated Turkish State of Cyprus which exists without international recognition in the north of the island.
