Two explosions in Paphos

Two explosions occurred in Paphos late on Monday evening. A bomb exploded outside a house while a Molotov cocktail was thrown at another house.

At 11.15pm, a device exploded at the main entrance of a building in Mouttalos. According to first investigations, the device was a fire extinguisher filled with explosives.

The blast damaged the entrance and windows of neighbouring residences.

Police issued a warrant against a 25-year-old person in connection with the incident.

Just 20 minutes later, a fire broke out at the entrance of another house in Paphos, the home of a 21-year-old man. This time, a Molotov cocktail was thrown at the building.

The fire was put out by a neighbour and only slightly damaged the house.

A 21-year-old man believed to be involved was arrested.

Authorities are investigating if the two incidences are related.
