Excavations by the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) are ongoing near the Tekke Bahcesi, in the Turkish-occupied part of the old city of Nicosia, with excavation teams having so far recovered the remains of three people, believed to belong to Greek Cypriots who went missing in 1964. CMP is searching for a total of five missing persons in this area.
 
According to information by the CMP, excavations, which started last October, continue, but face various difficulties due to the area’s urban development.
