Violence as protest calls for Britain out of Cyprus
Tuesday 03 January 2012
Police clashed with Cyriots rallying outside the British Akrotiri airbase near Limassol on Monday and arrested two of them.
The demonstrators demanded that Britain shut both its Akrotiri base and one at Dhekelia, west of Larnaca – facilities that it kept after Cyprus won independence in 1960.
Scuffles took place when security guards and police tried to break up the rally, with some protesters throwing stones.
Four police officers and one journalist were hurt.
British Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said last month that the coalition plans to hang on to the “sovereign base areas in a region of geo-political importance and high priority for the United Kingdom’s long-term national security interests.”
