An “explosive device” detonated at around 3:30am in a car in the Ayios Spyridonas neighbourhood of Limassol on Friday.

The car belonged to a 28-year-old man.

Police say they became aware of the explosion at 5:50am, and a pyrotechnician carried out an examination.

It was established that the explosion was due to the detonation of a “metal object filled with a low-power explosive” which had been placed in the vehicle while it was parked outside the man’s home.

The vehicle suffered extensive damage.
