The remains of people believed to belong to four missing Greek-Cypriots in the occupied northern part of Cyprus were discovered north of lake Galateia. As the member of the special Investigative Commission on Missing Persons, Nestoras Nestoras said the number of people could rise. He underlined that the identification of the bones was made possible with the collaboration of a Turkish-Cypriot office in northern Cyprus. Mr. Nestoras explained that after excavations in the past in the area some human remains had been detected but with the use of new technology and the use of intelligence a positive outcome was possible, adding that the efforts to pin point more remains would continue. After the invasion of northern Cyprus by Turkish forces in 1974 it is estimated that around 1,600 people, including non-combatants, women and small children went missing.
