Background: Three EOKA men were captured without a shot fired by a routine patrol of Royal Welsh Fusiliers and Cyprus police in the Zodhia area. 20 miles west of Nicosia, Jan 18. A large quantity of arms and ammunition was discovered in the terrorists' hide-out.
Despite the EOKA's latest truce, British Security forces continue their anti-terrorist campaign. Leaflets demanding the end of these activities threaten a continuation of violence.
Extent of the truce is such that British servicemen and civilians walk unarmed in Ledra Street, Nicosia - the 'Murder Mile' where many people have been shot down by terrorists.
Governor Foot eased restrictions on the troubled island and released many political detainees.
Greek-Cypriot mayors have appealed to members of the British Labour Party and UN Secretary-General against the "provocative separation on municipalities" - giving each mixed community separate councils.
