Police defuse car bomb in Vrysoulles

A high-powered explosive device installed on a car was deactivated by the police bomb squad on Saturday.
The device, which experts said was an improvised explosive device, was spotted by a 67-year-old man from Vrysoulles who saw it on his car’s hood connected to a wire.
Police said the car was parked outside the 67-year-old man’s house and the device was installed between the front hood of the car and the windshield.
Until the device was deactivated, the area was closed off for safety reasons and evidence was collected that will be sent for scientific examinations.
Famagusta CID is investigating.
