Breaking: Far right group throws flare at US ambassador

Members of a far right organisation disrupted a meeting in Limassol which was being addressed by former Turkish Cypriot president Mehmet Ali Talat.

Despite a flare being thrown into the hall close to the US ambassador who was also present, no one was hurt.

Reports say that police rushed to secure the area where Talat was speaking to a group on “Prospects for resolving the Cyprus problem and the reunification of Cyprus”.

The intruders who burst in through the side door of the hall are members of the extreme right group ELAM.
