1. (C) Summary: Total headcount of U.S.-assisted arrivals in
Cyprus as of 1600L July 29 was 13,236. The number of
departures remained unchanged at 9,944. Two new charter
flights, to replace the flight that was canceled with no
notice on July 28, are being scheduled for 0200 and 0740 on
July 30; they have a combined capacity of 580.

CONSULAR



2. (C) Total headcount of U.S.-assisted arrivals in Cyprus as
of 1600L July 29 was 13,236 (actual number arrivals via
helicopter on July 27 was 5). The number of departures
remained unchanged at 9,944. Two new charter flights are
being scheduled for 0200 and 0740 on July 30, with a combined
capacity of 580. Post has decided to move all arrivals from
the 1700L Orient Queen to the Cyprus International
Fairgrounds, bringing the total of those to be sheltered
there by 1900L to 797. If the two charter flights indeed
depart early July 30, we expect this number to significantly
decrease. Consequently, our security-management concerns
with regard to the Fairgrounds facility will be reduced,
though not eliminated.

SECURITY



3. (U) RSO is providing support for the arrival in port of
military ships that have been transporting humanitarian aid.
They are also helping coordinate, along with marines from
CTF-59, social activities for the children staying at the
Fairgrounds (sports, music, movies). This is part of our
multi-pronged effort to manage the mounting security,
rumor-control, and health issues at the Fairgrounds.
