A 26-year-old arrested on suspicion of arson and causing damage to a mobile phone mast was on Sunday remanded in police custody for five days.

The damage was caused to the mast on the night of April 11.

On Sunday morning the suspect, who denies the charges, was taken to Limassol district court, where police said he had been arrested after other people had given testimony against him.

A search of his house found slogans written down that were the same as those in graffiti on the mast.

At the same time, a bottle of an explosive substance, spray paints and other evidence was found to link him to the two crimes.
