A homemade explosive device detonated at around 3:15am in the Ayia Phyla neighbourhood of Limassol.

The explosion occurred at the entrance of a house owned by a 67-year-old woman and damaged her front door.

The police said an “improvised explosive metal object” had been placed in front of the woman’s front door.

They moved in to cordon the area off, and their investigation into the matter is ongoing.
