    Background: On Wednesday and Thursday (15 and 16 January) several hundred Greek-Cypriot students demonstrated outside the British Embassy in Athens. The were protesting against the British Government's decision to allow the departure of Turkish-Cypriot refugees from the British bases in Cyprus.

    The students accused Britain of adopting a pro-Turkish attitude and held placards reading "Britain, CIA, Treason" and "No partition for Cyprus". They stayed throughout the night of Wednesday/Thursday while a strong police contingent guarded the building.

    Greek-Cypriots object to the transfer of Turkish-Cypriot refugees to the Turkish mainland while they themselves are unable to return to their homes in the northern, Turkish-occupied part of the island. There are about 200,000 Greek-Cypriot refugees because of the Turkish invasion last July.
