Anastasiades Back In Brussels Hospital

BRUSSELS – Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades was readmitted to a hospital after suffering continued nosebleeds from high blood pressure that kept him from attending a European Union meeting, represented by Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras.

Anastasiades had been admitted and then released but had to go back in on Oct. 23d but was expected to be released again on Oct. 24, according to government spokesman Victoras Papadopoulos who said doctors advised him to rest over the next few days.

The President’s health problems appeared as Turkey intensified its violations of Cyprus’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), sending a research vessel and war ships into an area south of the island where Nicosia was already conducting research for hydrocarbons.
