23 November 2006

Five Turkish Cypriot pupils at the British School in South Cyprus were assaulted by a group of young people entering the school from outside.

The pupils are said to be in good health.

The Leader of the Greek Cypriot Administration Tassos Papadopulos has strongly condemned the incident at the school.

A group of around 20 youths is reported to have entered the school’s garden and assaulted some Turkish Cypriot pupils at the school during a break.

Five Turkish Cypriot students suffered injuries from their head as a result of the assault.

The Headmaster of the school Stuard Haggett told the BRT correspondent that the group entered the school from outside and walked to a classroom where a group of Turkish Cypriot pupil was enjoying a break.

Explaining that some Turkish Cypriot pupils were beaten by members of the group, he said that the incident ended after intervention by Greek Cypriot pupils studying at the school.

The headmaster said that the five Turkish Cypriot pupils were in good health and were sent to their homes in safety.

Asked what could be the reason behind the incident, he said that police is still continuing its inquiry into the case but added that provocative news published earlier in the Greek Cypriot press could be the reason behind today’s attack.

A total of 70 Turkish Cypriot pupils are currently studying at the school.
