  • Description

    Archbishop Makarios and a Parliamentary delegation from Athens attended celebrations in Nicosia on Tuesday (March 25) to mark the anniversary to Greek independence.

    On the other side of the island, the Turkish Cypriots also had a holiday...but it was a more solemn occasion. They were celebrating the birth of the prophet Mohammed.

    In Nicosia, the Archbishop and Mr. Glafkos Clerides went to the Phaneromeni Church on the Green Line for a religious service before attending a march-past of Greek Cypriots.

    Turkish Cypriots this year could not visit the Hala Sultan Tekke, one of the principal shrines of the Moslem world, which stands in Greek held territory near Larnaca on the south coast.
