MORE BLOODSHED IN CYPRUS: Following the killing of a British woman on Cyprus yesterday, the British rulers of the island have embarked upon a furious campaign of vandalism and terrorism against the Greek residents of Famagusta, resulting in the deaths of six men by beating and a 12-year-old girl, Ioanna Zachariadi, who is said to have died of heart failure or nervous collapse when British soldiers burst into her family’s house by breaking down the door. A total of 250 people have been killed, while hundreds of people have been arrested and subjected to terrible abuse. TERRORISM: Proclamations were distributed on Cyprus yesterday, issued by an organization bearing the initials IKO, which pledged to use force to make the Greeks of Cyprus «fear the security forces.» They said IKO was a «British organization aimed at fighting terrorism.» FRANCE-GREECE 7-1: According to reports from Paris, the national soccer teams of France and Greece played each other at the Parc des Princes stadium before a crowd of 32,000 for the European Cup, which ended in France’s favor 7-1.
