Car bombed in Limassol

A man was remanded in Limassol on Wednesday for five days in connection with the bombing of a car belonging to the ex-girlfriend of a man killed along with two others in a knife attack last November.

The car belonging to the 22-year-old woman was badly damaged by a home-made bomb early on Wednesday police said.

“An explosion in a car belonging to a 22-year-old woman took place 50 minutes after midnight today,” a statement from police said, adding the car was located in the parking space of her Limassol house.

“Extensive damage to the car was caused from the explosion while slight damage was sustained to two other vehicles belonging to the family. Examinations have shown the explosion was caused by an improvised explosive device that had been place between the front hood and windscreen.”

The man was arrested later after testimony was secured against him that he had threatened the woman with consequences if she did not break a relationship she had recently begun.

The 23-year-old, who has come under police scrutiny in the past for similar reasons declared he had nothing to do with the bomb attack and offered an alibi.

The woman was engaged to Emilios Miltiadous, one of the victims of the triple murder last November, with whom she had a child.


Limassol CID is investigating the case.
