Isaac-Solomou memorial service marred by nationalists

The 19th annual national memorial service of Greek Cypriot Tassos Isaac and his cousin Solomos Solomou, who were murdered by Turks in August 1996, during two anti-occupation demonstrations, was held in Paralimni on Sunday.

The events were marred by nationalists jeering the government’s representatives at the memorial service.
