Abstract

At 6.30 last night, three armed masked men entered the Frenaros coffee shop. After ordering the bystanders, about 25-30 people, to turn against the wall they shot and killed Mihail Mihrasiati. Then the masked men went to the house of Chrtistodoulou Ornifari, a twenty-four year old barber and shot him dead. The police was notified of these incidents this morning. The murdered bodies were taken to the Famagusta Hospital where autopsies were carried out. According to official announcements, the three masked men were armed with two hunting rifles and an automatic gun. Mihail Mikrasiati was unemployed, married and a father of two. Christodoulos Ornifaris, married and a father of one child, was shot and killed while sleeping.
