  • Description

    Another police station has been destroyed by explosive in Cyprus. At II am on Friday morning (June 8), 30 armed men attacked the police station in Vatili village, half-way between Nicosia and Famagusts. They disarmed the policemen and forced them out of the station.

    Dynamite was placed in the building and it was badly damaged in the explosion.

    Some of the dynamite did not explode and the building was in such a dangerous conditions, that the police had to complete the demolition work, and blow up their own police station.
