The incident occurred at around 8am, police said, as the 61-year-old was returning to his car after hunting in the Ha-Potami area.

The hunter accidentally pulled the trigger on his rifle, injuring his right palm.

After being treated initially at the Paphos general hospital, he was then moved to a private clinic in Limassol.
