A boat with 51 migrants arrived on Saturday morning in the Kapparis area in Famagusta.

The boat landed at around 11am in the buffer zone and the group crossed to the government-controlled areas.

The group consists of 35 men, five women and 11 children. They were taken by the police to the Famagusta police headquarters for identification and other procedures.

Reports said that authorities had spotted the boat sailing off Cyprus and had picked up a woman and three children with some health issues on Friday while it was still at sea and took them to hospital.
