A 24-year-old migrant set himself on fire on Wednesday morning outside the migration services office in Larnaca.
He is being treated for burn wounds at the Larnaca general hospital A&E department.
The act of self-immolation was carried out in protest after having his asylum request rejected, according to the Cyprus News Agency.
Police detailed that the incident occurred at about 11am after the 24-year-old approached an official outside the migration services office.
He complained that his application was rejected and then set himself on fire, having brought flammable liquid in a bottle.
