Protest backfires in Cyprus, ends in arrest

ABC Australia carries a report of a protest gone awry against passport checks along the green line separating Greek and Turkish zones in Cyprus: "Man makes an ass of Cyprus passport checks." Pensioner Savvas Christodoulou was arrested in Nicosia after trying to get his donkey Shelidona through the checkpoint on a false passport. "The protest plan recalled an off-the-cuff comment made some years ago by the Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash, who said donkeys were the only species which was indigenous to Cyprus."
