Two boats with a total of 141 migrants spotted on Friday night off Cape Greco by the port police landed on Saturday and the migrants onboard were taken to Pournara.

The boats were carrying 92 men, 12 women, 25 children and 12 unaccompanied minors.

The migrants are 138 refugees from Syria, one man from Lebanon and two people from Palestine.

After registering their details at Larnaca port, the migrants were transferred to the Pournara Reception Centre in Kokkinotrimithia.

The last arrival of a boat with migrants was recorded on April 5, preceded by six days of continuous arrivals, with 15 boats arriving on the shores of Cyprus.
