Boat with 122 migrants lands at Paralimni

A boat carrying 122 migrants, most of them from Syria, spotted sailing six nautical miles off Cavo Greco was rescued on Wednesday afternoon and taken to Paralimni.

The boat, believed to have departed from Syria, was spotted at around 2.30pm.

A police patrol boat dispatched to the area helped the migrants board and brought them to the Golden Coast fishing harbour in Paralimni. Among the migrants are reportedly also unaccompanied minors.

Authorities were expecting to finish recording the migrants’ details after 11pm and after that they were to be taken to the Pournara temporary reception centre in Kokkinotrimithia.
