Cyprus Detained, Freed 30 Terrorists

NICOSIA- Cypriot authorities said they kept 30 Islamic State jihadists from entering Europe after halting them before they were sent back to their own countries.

There was no explanation on why they weren’t arrested. The newspaper Phileleftheros said the terrorists were found trying to leave Larnaca airport to get into Europe.

Central Intelligence Service (KYP) figures, according to the paper, indicate the 30 were either listed as suspected terrorists or otherwise considered to be linked to the Islamic State but not held for further questioning.

Police Chief Zacharias Chrysostomou on March 24 visited Larnaca Airport to inspect security levels. Following the Paris attacks, airport security in Cyprus has added 120 members to its National Guard.
