The Nicosia family court was evacuated on Wednesday after a bomb threat was later found to be a hoax.

The police and bomb squad went to the scene after the call regarding a bomb was received just after 10am.

Some two hours later the police tweeted that nothing was found, ending investigations and restoring access.

According to the police press office, the number which was used to inform media, including the Cyprus Mail, of the bomb threat, has been passed on to police unit for investigation.
