Nine British soldiers have been charged following a bar brawl in Ayia Napa on Friday. The men had been celebrating what is known as “millionaire’s weekend” – they had received their last pay packet before their tour of duty on the island was due to come to an end next month.
Five people – three soldiers and two Greek Cypriots – were injured after tables, chairs and bottles were thrown in a fight in the island’s Bedrock Inn. One was reported to have been taken to Larnaca general hospital suffering from internal bleeding and one of the soldiers suffered a fractured skull.
