Unfortunately in 1974, after 11 years of violence and an attempted coo by Greek Cypriot nationalists, Turkey invaded and took control of the northern portion of the island. The violence and Turkish invasion led to the movement of hundreds of thousands of Cypriots and resulted in a separate Turkish Cypriot political entity in the north. These events and the political situation continue to this day.
