Euro Crisis

U.K. Commits €1 Million To Assist Military Personnel Stranded in Cyprus

Cash being a tad hard for them to come by


Britain has sent €1 million in cash to Cyprus to bail out Armed Forces personnel affected by the country's banking crisis.

 A regular RAF flight from Britain to Cyprus took off this afternoon carrying the cash.

Officials said the money, worth £860,000, will be available for emergency loans for Service personnel who find themselves unable to access cash in Cyprus.
