Police found two groups of migrants crossing illegally from the north near Athienou on Saturday.

The first group of migrants were six men from Iraq and Syria, and when questioned by police about where they crossed, the migrants failed to explain.

The six men were taken to the Pournara migrant camp near Kokkinotrimithia.

The second group of 30 were found just after 6:30am crossing in the same area. Police took them to the Athienou station for examinations and will later transfer them to Pournara camp.
