Tragedy and Anxiety – Two Cypriot Students Missing in Train Wreck

NICOSIA – The train collision in Tempi, on the Greek mainland, has become an unimaginable national tragedy, with two young Cypriot students among the missing. Relatives and friends of Kyprianos Papaioannou and Anastasia Adamidou are making anguished appeals to find out what happened to them.

Kyprianos Papaioannou, a 23-year-old law student from Avgorou, was returning to Thessaloniki when the accident occurred. His family members have left for the Greek city of Larissa and have contacted all the hospitals in the area in search of him.

Anastasia Adamidou, a 24-year-old dental student from Paphos, was also on board the train and appears to have been in the third car. As of 11 PM on Tuesday night, she had not been in contact with anyone. Her boyfriend’s father was at the Larissa General Hospital on Wednesday and appealed to anyone who has seen her or knows anything about her fate. The 24-year-old’s parents also traveled from Cyprus to Larissa on Wednesday afternoon.

It should be noted that three other young Cypriots were on the same train but have been identified and are in good health. They are Varvara Liggi, Christos Agathokleous, and George Kakoulli.


NICOSIA, Cyprus  — Cyprus said Saturday it’s suspending processing all asylum applications by Syrian nationals because large numbers of refugees from the war-torn country continue to reach the island nation by boat, primarily from Lebanon.
