TERRORISM: Nicosia, 13 – As the British authorities continue with acts of terrorism throughout Cyprus and announce their discoveries of caches of weapons and ammunition, waves of arrests continue, while patriots continue to display their unswerving determination to throw off the yoke. Fresh incidents today between Kyrenia high school pupils and police and army units are characteristic of the critical state of affairs. Meanwhile, British troops opened fire on a taxi that did not stop at a road block set up north of Famagusta, resulting in the injury of its two passengers, a mother and her 11-year-old daughter. The mother, Maria Economidou, 37, a Greek citizen, died of her injuries shortly afterward at a Famagusta hospital. REPORT ON MARKEZINIS: According to the findings of a parliamentary committee on letters between the former minister for coordination, Mr Spyros Markezinis, and National Economy Minister of West Germany Dr Ludwig Erhardt on German credits, Messrs Markezinis and Thanos Kapsalis were found to bear grave responsibility for committing Greece to agreements with Siemens and Telefunken.
