The following images were posted on social media showing the deplorable state of the ancient amphitheatre at Salamis.

Cevdet Dilekkaya posted on Facebook that he had taken friends, who were visiting the island from abroad, to visit the ruins at Salamis.

He wrote that he was both shocked and embarrassed when they discovered how the famous ruins had been left by the authorities.

Cevdet called on those responsibility to clean up and said that they should by ashamed of their neglect. He pointed out that for years, efforts had been made to promote the north as a tourist destination and this is how ancient artefacts were valued, he wondered.
