Turkish trouble for Cyprus as gas exploration expands

A Turkish police officer patrols the dock, backdropped by the drilling ship 'Yavuz' scheduled to be dispatched to the Mediterranean, at the port of Dilovasi, outside Istanbul, Thursday, June 20, 2019. Turkish officials say the drillship Yavuz will be dispatched to an area off Cyprus to drill for gas. Another drillship, the Fatih, is now drilling off Cyprus' west coast at a distance of approximately 40 miles in waters where the east Mediterranean island nation has exclusive economic rights. The Cyprus government says Turkey's actions contravene international law and violate Cypriot sovereign rights. (AP Photo/Lefteris Pitarakis)
