There has been a new arrival of irregular migrants in the Akamas area, the Cyprus News Agency has reported.

Police said that the group of 14 men, two women and three children — were found at around 7.30 am on Tuesday in the Kakoskali area of the Akamas. They were taken to Polis Chrysochous police station for processing.
