Chlorakas murder: : Police find car, bloodstained clothes

Police have found a car and bloodstained clothes believed to belong to two men wanted for the premeditated murder of a 20 year old Syrian man in Chlorakas late on Friday night.

The clothes were found in wheelie bin in the Chlorakas area and have been sent for tests.

The car was found earlier on Sunday, abandoned near an agricultural area of Lemba, not far from the Chlorakas beach where the body was found on Saturday afternoon. It is registered in the name of someone friendly with the suspects who said they had asked to borrow it. The Cyprus News Agency reports that there were traces of blood in the vehicle.

Police are still looking for two Syrian nationals in connection with the killing.

They are Walid Al Moustafa 22 and Tarek Haj Halaf 25. Anyone with any information should contact Paphos CID on 26-806021 or the closest police station or the citizens’ helpline on 1460.
