Police on Wednesday found a low-powered improvised explosive device in a vehicle owned by a woman in Larnaca.

Larnaca police spokesman Spyros Chrysostomou confirmed that the device did not explode, and that police had cordoned the area off.

He said that a bomb disposal expert was called to deactivate the device.

He added that the woman was asked to give a statement to police “to find out if she suspects someone or if she was threatened or if she had any problems with anyone.”

Police are also monitoring CCTV footage from the area to establish the circumstances under which the explosive device was placed.
