    [01] Demonstrators suffered shotgun wounds

    Nicosia, Aug 11 (CNA) -- A number of demonstrators that were confronted with the Turkish occupation forces in the area of the British Bases on the island have suffered shotgun wounds, according to a British Forces press release.

    ''Among a number of confrontations along the UN buffer zone and the Turkish forces cease fire line today were two in the eastern sovereign base area that led to a number of people being injured, some of the injuries from shotgun wounds'', the statement says.

    It says that a civilian was seriously injured, while two sovereign base area police officers (Cypriots) and five other Cypriot civilians sustained slight injuries and one man was treated for injury caused by stones.

    It also notes that ''so far as is known, no high velocity weapons were fired.''

    Air Vice-Marshal Peter Millar, Administrator of the British bases, described as ''particularly regrettable that these incidents took place'' despite the agreement of the president of the motorcyclists' federation to call off the ride, this morning, at the request of President Glafcos Clerides.
