Paphos police said on Monday they are investigating after visitors found six human bones in Akamas.

Officers rushed to the area after they were notified on Sunday about the discovery of bones by visitors at Lara beach.

Police received the bones and proceeded to on-site investigation without any further discoveries, Paphos police spokesman and CID head Michalis Ioannou told the media later in the day.

The bones were transferred to Paphos police headquarters and on Monday morning were examined by an anthropologist of the antiquities department, who said the discovery concerned human bones.

Further scientific examinations are expected to be carried out on the bones to determine the identity of the person to whom they belonged, the spokesman added.
