According to Cybc, a man and a woman, both non-Cypriots aged 40, were attacked in their apartment around 4am by a man with a knife. The perpetrator stabbed both of them and fled.

The couple were taken to Nicosia general hospital where the man died of his injuries around 7am. His wife is still in hospital after undergoing surgery.
