Bid to reunite Europe's last divided capital

Cypriots hold talks for the third time in a decade to reunite Nicosia, but efforts seem far from achieving the goal.

    Twenty-five years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, one European capital still stands divided.

    Nicosia, in Cyprus, is a capital split by a UN military buffer zone, put in place half a century ago to prevent fighting between Greek and Turkish Cypriots.

    Cypriots are making their third attempt in a decade to reunite the island and do away with the barrier. However, efforts seem far from achieving the goal.

    Al Jazeera's John Psaropoulos reports from Nicosia.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
