Ten Cypriot nationals were detained by police outside the Turkish Embassy on Thursday morning, as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan started his one-day visit to Athens.
The protesters unfolded a banner and chanted slogans against Erdogan’s visit to the Greek capital.
Cyprus has been divided along ethnic lines since 1974 when Turkey invaded in the wake of a coup instigated by the Greek junta aimed at union with Greece. Turkey occupied the northern part of the island where it maintains more than 35,000 troops there.
