Irish man detained for arms possession

Paphos police on Thursday arrested an Irish national in connection with the discovery of firearms at his Peyia home six days ago.

Reports said the 69-year-old refused to answer any questions.

He was arrested on Thursday at 10.30pm on a warrant issued after officers searched his home and found a loaded pistol and a silencer, a repeating sawed-off shotgun, and a crossbow.

The man was abroad at the time and the house was searched in the presence of his wife.
