Four fragments of looted frescoes from the Turkish occupied part of Cyprus were handed over to the Republic of Cyprus after they have been recovered by international NGO Walk of Truth.  A special event took place on Monday at the Embassy of Cyprus in the Hague and the frescoes were accepted by Transport, Communications and Works Minister Vassiliki Anastasiadou, on behalf of Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades.
 
Two of the frescoes have been identified as belonging to the church of Panagia Apsinthiotissa, a Greek Orthodox monastery situated in the northern Turkish occupied part of the island.
