Remand after mosque threat

A 30-YEAR-OLD man from Congo, arrested for allegedly threatening to blow up mosques, and his 27-year-old flatmate from Senegal, were remanded for eight days pn Wednesday by the Limassol court.

According to Sigmalive, the 30-year-old who has a French passport, was reported to the police by the mufti of the mosque in the Ayios Antonios area in Limassol on Tuesday when he reportedly threatened to blow up all the mosques in Cyprus.

The suspect allegedly issued the threat when the mufti asked him what he was doing wandering around his mosque. The suspect was later located by police at his house and he and his roommate were arrested.

“Some information concerning issues of terrorism are being investigated, but so far nothing is confirmed and investigations continue,” Police spokesman Andreas Angelides said. Reportedly Interpol was also notified.
