61 migrants who arrived in Paphos want to go to Italy

The 61 illegal migrants who due to bad weather ended at the port of Kato Paphos, escaped from the Police aiming to continue their trip.

The Coast Guard finally spotted their boat sailing west of Paphos, but despite efforts to convince them to come back to the port they were determined to go to Italy, as initially planned.

It is reminded that the migrants came from Syria and Lebanon. However, due to the fact that there is an agreement with Beirut for the return of illegal migrants, these people were not taken into a reception center in Cyprus but remained in their boat where they were given blankets and food.
