Subject: Turkish Cypriot ex-president Rauf Denktash dies

Written By: Philip Eno on 01/13/12 at 2:49 pm

Rauf Denktash, who headed the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus for more than 30 years, has died aged 88, his family says.

Mr Denktash became president of the territory when Cyprus split in 1974 and retired in 2005.

His health has declined considerably in the last decade and he suffered multiple organ failure after being admitted to hospital on 8 January.

He was regarded as a staunch supporter of Turkish Cypriot independence.
