Revolt in Cyprus
Greek officers of the National Guard led a revolt that ousted Cypriot leader Archbishop Makarios III. Turkish troops invaded the island, and captured over half of it. A cease-fire was arranged and Makarios returned. Cyprus, however, was virtually partitioned into Greek and Turkish territories.
