A 22 year old man is under arrest on suspicion of assisting illegal entry into the Republic of Cyprus after a boat with 101 irregular migrants from Syria was brought to shore at Protaras.

The arrest came amid reports that another boat load of irregular migrants is on its way from Mersin.

He is expected to appear before Famagusta district court later today to be remanded in custody.
