Bomb explodes outside Limassol bakery

A bomb went off early on Friday outside a bakery in Limassol, owned by a 50-year-old former football referee.

According to a police report, police members rushed to the scene to investigate, and found that the explosion was the result of an improvised explosive device, which had been placed at the bakery’s main door.

The bakery is owned by former football referee Andros Andronikou, who is a regular commentator on Sigma TV station’s weekly late-night football show.

The blast destroyed the bakery’s electric sliding door.

In a statement to the police, Andronikou said he suspects the bombing was football-related.

Further testing by Limassol CID will resume during the day.
