27 November 2012

Tensions increased in the capital last night as Nicosia Turkish municipality workers escalated their protests by setting fire to rubbish and traffic cones in front of the the Ministry building.

They made an attempt to break into a meeting of the Council Ministers to directly confront Prime Minister Kucuk.

Police and security guards, on standby, were called to break up the demonstration.

The council workers have remained unpaid for the past two months.
