Nicosia, Mar 11 (CNA) -- Britain's special envoy for Cyprus, Lord David Hannay, placed the blame squarely on Turkish Cypriot Leader Rauf Denktash's shoulders for the Cyprus talks collapse in The Hague this morning, according to Reuter's.

''I am sad about it but I do not think that Mr Denktash left him (Annan) any alternative,'' Hannay told Reuters.|
