CYPRUS, Nicosia (AP) _ Cyprus will temporarily take in the 13 suspected Palestinian militants holed up in Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity, the Cypriot foreign minister told reporters late Thursday.
``Cyprus has agreed to take the 13 people as a temporary measure,'' Yiannakis Cassoulides told reporters at a hastily convened press conference held at the foreign ministry building in the Cypriot capital, Nicosia.
