The Mayor of Ayia Napa, a popular tourist resort in southeastern Cyprus, has called for a year-round ban on British troops based on the island following a string of violent incidents in the area involving soldiers.
The move came after nine British soldiers were charged with smashing up a bar and attacking locals. “Under the circumstances we believe it would be better if we declare the whole of Ayia Napa off limits to British soldiers from the bases,” Mayor Nakis Tsokkos said.
