  • Description

    PRESIDENT MAKARIOS DROVE TO FAMAGUSTA, SCENE OF THE NEW OUTBREAK OF INTER-COMMUNAL TROUBLE BETWEEN THE ISLAND'S GREEK AND TURKISH CYPRIOT COMMUNITIES, YESTERDAY (SATURDAY). THE FIGHTING, WHICH BROKE OUT LAST TUESDAY, HAS SO FAR CLAIMED ONE LIFE AND ELEVEN OTHER CASUALTIES.

    THE CEASE-FIRE ESTABLISHED ON FRIDAY WAS STILL IN EFFECT WHEN PRESIDENT MAKARIOS ARRIVED, AND SWEDISH UNITS OF THE U.N. PEACE FORCE PATROLLED NEAR THE MASSIVE WALLS OF THE OLD SECTOR OF THE CITY WHERE THE TURKISH COMMUNITY LIVES.

    TURKEY YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) REJECTED PRESIDENT MAKARIOS'S APPEAL FOR THE REMOVAL OF FORTIFIED POSITIONS IN TURKISH-CYPRIOT AREAS.

    THE PROPOSALS WERE INCLUDED IN A FIVE-POINT PLAN SUBMITTED BY THE PRESIDENT TO THE U.N. COMMANDER, GENERAL THIMAAYYA. APART FROM DISMANTLING OF FORTIFIED POSITIONS, THE PLAN CALLED FOR U.N. PERSONNEL TO JOIN POLICE PATROLS; A BAN ON ARMED PERSONNEL ENTERING OR LEAVING THE OLD PART OF THE CITY; TURKISH-CYPRIOTS TO BE FORBIDDEN TO PATROL THE CITY WALLS; AND A TURKISH-CYPRIOT SCHOOL OUTSIDE THE CITY (WHICH HAS BEEN THE CENTRE OF HEAVY FIGHTING) TO BE USED FOR "EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES" ONLY.
