A small aircraft crashed in the village of Marki, in the Nicosia district, on Saturday morning.

Rescuers pulled the two people in the plane from the wreckage. Both received first aid at the scene before being taken to the Nicosia general hospital.

One of the two people on board the aircraft was discharged from hospital on Saturday afternoon, while updates are awaited regarding the state of the other.
