Nicosia Exhumations to Identify Greek Nationals

NICOSIA— Unidentified Greek nationals buried in Nicosia will be exhumed and finally identified after more than fifty years. Presidential Commissioner for Humanitarian Issues and Overseas Cypriots, Fotis Fotiou, told CNA that exhumations will take place at a cemetery in Nicosia, aiming at the scientific identification of the remains of six Greeks killed in August 1964, when Turkish Air Force jets bombed Phaethon patrol boat which was sailing close to Xeros Harbour at Morphou Bay, during the Tylliria battle. Twenty-three men were aboard the ship and one Cypriot was also killed, CNA reported.

The six Greeks were buried at Saints Constantinos and Eleni cemetery in Nicosia.
