Nicosia police on Wednesday said two arrests have been made in relation to attempted arson and car arson.

Around 5pm on Tuesday police were alerted that a private vehicle, owned by a 39-year-old woman, was on fire.

The fire was extinguished by the fire service, but the car was completely torched, and it was later determined that it was a case of arson.

During investigations, a testimony was obtained against a 52-year-old man, who was taken into custody.

Later on, around 12.50 am, another fire was reported, this time near a house in Morphou, which was dealt with by the complainant.

It was also identified as arson and a 21-year-old was arrested in relation to the case.
