Police on Wednesday arrested three men in connection with an investigated case of attempted arson committed in Nicosia.

According to police the arson attempt happened shortly after midnight on Tuesday, in a village residence.

Police received the information from the owner of the house who extinguished the fire.

Examinations by the police and the fire service established that the fire has been maliciously set using three car tyres, which had been placed against a wall by unknown persons. The fire damaged the house wall.
