Police in Paphos arrested a 29-year-old Syrian man after he attempted to leave the country using a counterfeit Italian passport.

On Tuesday night at 7pm the man, his wife and their four children were stopped at passport control by officers who suspected their documents were forged.

After questioning, the 29-year-old told police he was attempting to travel to Germany with his family.

Police arrested the man and released the remaining family members who police believe were unaware of the forged documents.
