Prison guard’s home bombed

The Nicosia Central Prison

A bomb exploded outside the home of a prison guard in Astromeritis early on Wednesday, police said.

No one was injured in the 2.10am blast but damage was caused to a car and the home’s windows.

Police said the blast was caused by an improvised high-explosive device placed in the yard.

The motives behind the blast were being sought in the man’s work environment but “there is no specific lead so far,” police spokesman Andreas Angelides said.
