    Cyprus remembers those killed in 1974 coup

    Nicosia, Jul 9 (CNA) - Memorial services will be held tomorrow in churches in the government-controlled areas of the Republic of Cyprus for those who lost their lives defending the Republic during the 1974 military coup against the democratically elected President of Cyprus. A Sanctus will also be held tomorrow at the tomb of Archbishop Makarios.

    The military coup against the first President of the Republic, Archbishop Makarios, engineered by the military junta then ruling Greece, was followed five days later by the Turkish invasion, which resulted in the illegal occupation of the island's northern third and its de facto division.

    Tomorrow's memorial services in Limassol, Larnaca, Paphos, Paralimni, Polis Chrysochous and Evryhou will be attended by members of the cabinet and government officials, while the Nicosia memorial service will be held on July 14 in the presence of President Tassos Papadopoulos.

    On July 17, memorial services will be held for those who lost their lives during the 1974 Turkish invasion.

    The services in Limassol, Larnaca, Paphos, Paralimni, Polis Chrysochous and Evryhou will be attended by members of the cabinet and government officials, while the Nicosia memorial service will be held on July 20 in the presence of President Papadopoulos

    The Holy Synod of the Church of Cyprus has decided that on July 20 flags will be half-mast at all churches in the government-controlled areas and church bells will toll dolefully for 15 minutes.
