Unearthing a Painful Past in Cyprus

My article in today's Christian Science Monitor, about a project in to unearth mass graves in Cyprus, reminders of the violence that gripped the island in the 1960's and 70's. The project, perhaps the most successful bi-communal effort in Cyprus, is being seen as an important step in helping reunify the divided island.

In a related story for Women's eNews, I profiled Sevgul Uludag, a Turkish Cypriot journalist whose brave pioneering work helped bring the mass graves issue to the top of the agenda on the island.
