  • Description

    There was another bombing incident on Wednesday (31 January) in Cyprus.

    A bomb exploded outside the house of a police officer who belongs to the bodyguard of President Makarios. Damage was minor and nobody was injured.

    Police believe the incident had something to do with the coming Presidential elections. President Makarios has blamed followers of former anti-British guerrilla leader. George Grivas, for similar recent outranges and armed raids. He told a news conference that the government and people were not prepared to tolerate such acts of terrorism, and pledged that the elections would go ahead on February 18th.

    Supporters of General Grivas, the founder of the EOKA guerrilla organisation, have declared through their political front - the Committee for the Co-ordination of the Enosis (Union with Greece) that they will not nominate a candidate to oppose Archbishop Makarios. They have also said they will ignore the result of the election.
