Three minors have been apprehended by police over a fire last week that burned four airport shuttle buses, authorities said on Friday.

Police said that they received witness testimony against the three minors, who authorities said are being dealt with in accordance with the law.

The fire broke out on June 20 at around 8:15pm, destroying four buses, and damaging a fifth.

The flames were brought under control shortly before 10pm.

Fire service spokesman Andreas Kettis said three fire trucks had been deployed to the scene to fight the flames from the Nicosia station.

The fire was close to the police headquarters building and left four buses completely charred.
