THE TIMES WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 3 1943

ALL RESISTANCE OVER AT STALINGRAD

REMAINING GERMAN FORCES CAPITULATE

LT.-GEN. STREICHER TAKEN PRISONER

ENEMY LINES PIERCED S.E. OF ROSTOV

The Russians officially announced late last night that all remaining German forces at Stalingrad had capitulated. Lieutenant-General Streicher, commander of the 11th Army Corps, and seven other generals has been captured, and the total of German prisoners had increased by 45,000 in the past two days.

A new break-through by the Russians south-east of Rostov has brought them into contact with the German defensive arc barring the immediate approaches to the city, and the enemy is reported to be still retreating.

CYPRUS’S GREAT WELCOME TO PRIME MINISTER

ISLANDERS TOLD OF UNITED NATIONS’ GREAT STRENGTH

TURKISH FOREIGN MINISTER SEES PAPEN

Mr. Churchill visited Cyprus on his return from his conversations with the Turkish President, and our Nicosia Correspondent in a message last night described the great enthusiasm with which he [sic] islanders welcomed him.

In an address to a representative gathering in the island the Prime Minister assured them that “the United Nations represent incomparably the strongest group of human beings that has ever been marshalled in arms in the whole history of the world,” not only on material force, but in unity of purpose.
