Boat with irregular migrants off Cape Greco

A boat carrying about 100 irregular migrants was spotted south of Cape Greco on Friday morning and the coastguard is on its way to provide supplies and inform them that they will not be allowed to enter the Republic of Cyprus because of stringent measures taken to contain the spread of coronavirus.

Citing sources, the Cyprus News Agency said that wooden boat is about 10 nautical miles south of Cape Greco.

All protocols have been activated and a coastguard operation is underway not to allow the boat to come to the Republic.

CNA said they will be given provisions and fuel and told not to approach the Republic, it added,
