Turkish Atrocities During Cyprus Invasion

A secret Council of Europe report on the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, written in 1976, has recently been obtained by the Movement for Freedom and Justice in Cyprus. It documents numerous atrocities committed by Turkish troops during the invasion, including widespread rape.

Here is one of many incidents described in the report:
A mentally-retarded girl aged 24 was raped in her house by 20 soldiers one after the other. When she started screaming they threw her from the second floor window. She sustained fracture dislocation of the spine and became paralysed.
