    [01] Missing - Funeral

    Nicosia, Nov 14 (CNA) -- The atmosphere was sombre and the mood laden with feelings of pride and sorrow among the family of Zenon Zenonos as well as many bystanders, who gathered at the small church for a last farewell to the 16-year-old, killed during the Turkish invasion and until recently listed as missing.

    "At long last, his mother can be at ease with herself now that she has learnt what has become of her son," one lady whispered to her friend nearby.

    [05] Clerides - Statement - Cyprus talks

    Durban, Nov 14 (CNA) -- Cyprus President Glafcos Clerides announced here Sunday that he has accepted a proposal by the UN Secretary-General for proximity talks begining December 3 in New York, under his auspices, on the basic aspects of the Cyprus problem, as well as his assurances that the talks will be substantive.

    Clerides said a rejection would be a "terrible mistake" and would affect not only the course of the Cyprus problem, but also the island's course of accession to the European Union.
