Cyprus: police foil plot to kill Attorney General

NICOSIA, 29 OTT - Police have arrested three people
on suspicion of planning to kill the Attorney General, Petros
Clerides and the assistant director of Prisons, as Famagusta
Gazette online reports. A police spokesman refused to confirm
reports that an anti-tank weapon and other weapons were found in
the possession of the three suspects. He said that during a
police search several exhibits were seized and were under
forensic examination. Reports said an attack against the
Attorney General and also against the Assistant Director of the
Central Prisons, was averted almost at the last minute. One of
the arrested men is an ex-army non-commissioned officer with a
police record and a second one is a convict serving a long
prison sentence for booby-trapping a car with a bomb, which went
off and injured a judge and his juvenile daughter 16-years ago.
The men have been remanded in custody on suspicion of conspiring
to commit murder and of arms possession. The police refused to
speculate as to the motives of the suspects, saying that
investigations are still at an early stage. (ANSAmed).
