    Background: A delegation representing the Council of Europe toured Cyprus on a fact-finding tour on Friday (13 December) during which they visited a Greek-Cypriot refugee cam at Larnaca at the eastern end of the island.

    President Makarios had visited the camp three days before the Council of Europe delegation. There are some 2,000 Greek-Cypriot refugees in the tents at the camp and their situation is in danger of worsening with the coming of winter rains.

    The delegation, comprising members from Britain, Austria, Switzerland and France, spoke to many of the refugees, most of whom had been in the camps since their homes were lost during the Turkish invasion of the island.
