    Nicosia, Apr 24 (CNA) -- The illegal Turkish settlers in the northern occupied areas of the Republic are now a clear majority, Government Spokesman Michalis Papapetrou said here today, noting that indigenous Turkish Cypriots are leaving the country by the thousand.

    "Our information is that today the number of settlers in Turkish occupied Cyprus far outweighs the number of Turkish Cypriots and the majority of those living in the occupied areas is settlers," Papapetrou told his daily press briefing.
