  • Description

    AT THE BORDER POST OF KAKAVIA ON THE GREEK-ALBANIAN BORDER, JUNE 12, THE ALBANIAN GOVERNMENT HANDED OVER 40 GREEK NOMADS WHO WERE ABDUCTED BY GREEK COMMUNIST GUERRILLAS 15 YEARS AGO.

    THIS IS THE FIRST GROUP OF HOSTAGES TO BE REPATRIATED BY THE ALBANIANS SINCE DECEMBER LAST YEAR WHEN THEY PROMISED THE GREEKS THAT THEY WOULD RETURN THE 480 HOSTAGES STILL IN THEIR HANDS.

    MOST OF THE HOSTAGES WERE SHEPHERDS WHO WERE CAPTURED AND TAKEN INTO ALBANIA BY THE RETREATING CREEK COMMUNIST REBELS FROM 1946 TO 1949. THEY RETURNED WITH ABOUT 600 SHEEP AND GOATS. THE REMAINS OF THE STOCK THE REBELS TOOK ACROSS THE BORDER.

    SO FAR THE ALBANIANS HAVE GIVEN NO INDICATION WHEN THE REMAINING HOSTAGES WILL BE RETURNED.
