A sign marking the United Nations buffer zone is seen in the village of Pyla in the Larnaca District of Cyprus March 11, 2014. It is one of only four villages located within the United Nations Buffer Zone and is a mixed community with both Greek and Turkish Cypriots living side by side. This year marks 40 years since the Cyprus National Guard staged a coup in Cyprus and the subsequent Turkish military intervention, which escalated a civil war between the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities on the island. After the ceasefire a heavily restricted UN controlled Buffer Zone between the north and south of the island was put into operation. It stretches 180 Km across the whole island measuring 7.4 km at its widest and 3.3 meters at its narrowest point. It is restricted to the general public and no Greek or Turkish Cypriots are allowed inside. REUTERS/Neil Hall (BRITAIN)
