A group of twelve migrants were found walking around in Peristerona in the Nicosia district early on Wednesday.

According to police, all are male Syrians. Two of them are reportedly minors.

The men, who were spotted at 4.20am, were taken to the Kokkinotrimithia reception centre and all relevant services were informed of their arrival.

There has been a spike in migrants this year, and President Nicos Anastasiades will have an extraordinary meeting with the Council of Ministers in the afternoon to discuss immigration policy.
