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”.
