Brother 'learns fate of his missing sister' 50 years on

A MAN who lost nine relatives in one of the earliest atrocities of Cyprus's intercommunal conflict wept as he told how he had finally learned what happened to its youngest victim – his 10-year-old sister.

Brother  'learns fate of his missing sister' 50 years on

       Ayşe İbrahim was among 21 massacred after Greek Cypriot troops surrounded the village of Ayvasıl (Türkeli), between Lefkoşa and Güzelyurt, on December 21, 1963.

The girl's remains were finally laid to rest in Lefkoşa on Monday after the Committee of Missing Persons (CMP) confirmed her identity her two weeks ago through DNA testing.

Her brother Pamir İbrahim, 63, paid tribute to the CMP's work, saying it “really helps bring about closure” for the families of the “missing” and gives them “at least . . . a grave that we can now visit”.
