British Man Fatally Stabbed in Cyprus Holiday Resort

NICOSIA, Cyprus — A British man was fatally stabbed and another Briton wounded during a pre-dawn knife attack at Cyprus’ coastal resort of Ayia Napa, Cypriot police said Aug. 14.

The two Britons, both 22, were attacked while they were walking down a busy street by two knife-wielding men shortly after getting into a shoving match with one of them, Famagusta District Assistant Police Chief Georgios Economou told The Associated Press.

Economou gave the name of the man who died as George Low, from Kent, England. Economou said there is no suspicion the attack was terrorism-related and authorities are treating it as a murder case.

Low died from a stab wound to the neck. The other suffered four stab wounds to his back, but they aren’t life-threatening.

Economou said according to witness accounts, the two assailants, who are still being sought, appeared to be foreign nationals.

He said investigators have been able to track some of the suspects’ movements through closed-circuit television cameras.

Authorities have been alerted at all airports, ports and crossing points into the breakaway Turkish Cypriot north of the ethnically divided island to be on the lookout for the suspects.

Economou said the two victims had worked during the previous two years at Ayia Napa bars and clubs. The wounded Briton told investigators that he and Low had been vacationing in Ayia Napa this time.
