Three Turks from Cyprus Caught Trying to Cross Greece-Turkey Border

Three Turkish residents of the occupied northern side of Cyprus, two men and a woman, were reportedly apprehended in Greece trying to cross the border with Turkey while carrying weapons.

Greek police said the suspects hid 45 guns and two daggers in a special compartment in the trunk of their car, identifying the men as Turks who are residents of the isolated side while the woman had a British passport.

They attempted to cross the border near the Greek town of Kipoi, said The Cyprus Mail, the report adding that besides weapons police also found hidden in the trunk 18 packets of contraband cigarettes, several seemingly antique coins, nine mobile phones, 12 sim cards, a cannabis grinder and 700 euros ($747.44) in cash.


NICOSIA - The death of a 26-year-old food delivery worker on a motorbike, in a collision with a car, drew protests on Cyprus from colleagues protesting labor conditions and demanding safety measures for them.
