Baby Bones and Pacifier Found in 1974 Mass Grave in Cyprus

pipilaThe bones of a deceased 6-month-old baby and a pacifier alongside his relatives were discovered in a mass grave in Cyprus.
The child’s bones were found next to a pacifier and a key that appears to be that of his house, in a mass grave in the area of Trahoni, which is close to the border with Turkish Cyprus, according to Greek media reports. The baby, whose name was Antreas Kyriacou, was buried along with his mother, grandmother and aunts following the 1974 Turkish invasion of Cyprus. Kyriacou and his family members were among the 1,532 Greek-Cypriots who have been officially reported missing since the invasion and have yet to be found.
The August 1974 invasion of Cyprus by Turkey and the ensuing occupation, has led to a division between Cyprus and Turkish Cyprus that exists until today. Renewed peace talks between the two sides have been going on since this past May.
