Tension at the Lokmaci crossing point
Scuffles broke out between police and protestors at the Lokmaci crossing border during an event organised by the United Cyprus – Bicommunal Peace Initiative. Amongst the initiative was the KTOS Teachers Union. It is being claimed that KTOS General Secretary Sener Elcil was attacked and hit on the chest during the scuffles.
Police tried to prevent the demonstrators who wanted to form a human chain using ribbons. Meanwhile it is being claimed that Foreign Minister Ozdil Nami who happened to be at the Lokmaci crossing point, indicated, like the police, that the human chain would not be allowed at the crossing point.
The demonstration ended after the scuffles ended
