Days only after 30 Syrian irregular migrants saw their inflatable boat intercepted off the Akamas peninsula in Paphos another 40 Syrians were found wandering in the district’s Lara Bay area early on Thursday.
This is what Philenews reported, adding that these are 38 men, two women and four children who were all heading on foot towards Agios Georgios Pegeias.
Earlier, the radars of the Paphos Port Police detected a boat heading from Turkey towards Cyprus’ territorial waters.
But, due to the darkness, it was not possible to detect promptly the exact movements of the ship and passengers.
The irregular migrants were finally located at dawn by a police patrol and have been already taken to Pournara first reception centre off Nicosia.
Police continue search for those who have transported the migrants who said they paid enough money to the traffickers from Turkey.
