It's springtime in the Mediterranean, and the warblers, thrushes and bright-colored bee-eaters are on the wing, joining hundreds of millions of migratory birds--more than 200 species--flying north to their European breeding grounds. On the island of Cyprus, a stopover on the flight path, an army of hunters is getting the itch. And no bird is too small for the sights of its shotguns.

About 1,000 Greek Cypriot women declared victory and abandoned a stretch of Cyprus' ethnic dividing line after two days of protesting the 15-year-old Turkish occupation of the northern part of the island. The protest had threatened to wreck 11 months of U.N.-sponsored negotiations on reuniting the eastern Mediterranean nation. "We have achieved our purpose of emphasizing the Greek Cypriots' right of return" to their homes in the north, an organizer said.

Eighty-two Greek-Cypriot women jailed for their part in protests that have jeopardized Cyprus unification talks were freed by the Turkish breakaway state of Northern Cyprus. They boarded buses to return to Greek Cypriot territory, separated from the Turkish area by a U.N. buffer zone. However, 10 men, including a Greek Orthodox bishop, were still in jail after refusing to pay fines of up to $220.

About 400 Greek Cypriot women demonstrators brushed U.N. peacekeeping troops aside Sunday and crossed into the buffer zone separating Greek and Turkish portions of Cyprus. It was the first attempt by Greek Cypriots to enter the zone since it was established after the 1974 Turkish invasion. But mine fields kept the women demonstrators from advancing another 200 yards to enter the Turkish-occupied region on the other side.

They were blocked from further advance after brief scuffles with Turkish troops.
