Reunited after three decades

May 28, 2003

NICOSIA, Cyprus — Baha'is from the north and south of Cyprus met on 27 April 2003 when they were permitted to cross the demarcation line that had divided the island for three decades.

The event followed the decision by the Turkish Cypriot authorities to lift the ban on travel across the cease-fire line. Some 60 Turkish and Greek Baha'is held a devotional meeting together at the Baha'i center in Nicosia.
