Cyprus to mark 54 years of independence  

Cyprus will mark the 54th anniversary of its independence from British colonial rule with a military parade on Wednesday

The defence ministry said on Monday that infantry and mechanised units of the National Guard, the Greek Forces in Cyprus (ELDYK), the police and the fire service will take part in the parade on Iosif Hadjiosif Avenue, Strovolos in Nicosia.

President Nicos Anastasiades will take the salute at the parade, which will begin at 11am.

Greek Minister of National Defence Demetris  Avramopoulos will attend.
There will also be a 21-gun salute.

Cyprus gained its independence in 1960, after a four-year struggle against British colonial rule. (CNA)
