Bomb hoax at Anorthosis meeting at Nicosia hotel

A bomb hoax Thursday evening temporarily halted proceedings at what was an already stormy meeting of the Anorthosis football club.

At around 7.40pm a call was placed to the DIAS media group warning that a bomb had been planted at the Hilton Park Hotel, in Nicosia, where the meeting was being held.

The call was traced to a public phone booth in Limassol, police said.

The bomb squad combed the hotel for explosive devices, but found nothing. The all-clear was given at around 9pm.

Anorthosis members were meeting to vote on proposal to turn the historic football club into a corporation. A 75 per cent approval was needed for implementation of the proposal.
