Two explosions cause damages in Paphos (updated)

Both explosions that occurred in the early hours on Friday in the Paphos district were caused by a metal pipe bomb, Paphos police spokesman Michalis Ioannou said.

The first, which happened at around 3am, caused extensive damage to a car belonging to a 31-year-old woman.

Shortly after, the yard of a house belonging to a 28-year-old man was badly damaged by another blast.

The two targeted persons said they do not suspect anybody of the crimes and they have no differences with anybody.

Ioannou said it cannot be ruled out that a connection between the two incidents exists.

“One explosion occurred at a short distance from the second, the same object was used and it has not been ruled out that the perpetrator is the same.”
