Abstract

Turkish Cypriots while attending the funeral of another Turkish Cypriot policeman, started a riot against the oxygen factory that was near the the cemetery. At first they attacked the drivers and started beating them, after when an employee opened the gate so the drivers can pull through, they rushed inside the premises and started pelting the factory. Witnesses say that they were 2 to 3 thousand Turkish Cypriots that bolted inside the factory destroying everything. In charge of this riot were two Turkish Cypriot auxiliary policemen.
