Turkey begins gas drilling in disputed Cypriot region
Turkey began exploratory drilling for oil and gas Thursday in the breakaway north of ethnically divided Cyprus, heightening a dispute over who is entitled to the Mediterranean island's potential fuel riches.
The move counters an offshore gas search by rival Greek Cypriots in the island's internationally recognized southern half that has touched off vociferous protests from Ankara and Turkish Cypriots.
