Two students, aged 16 and 17, were arrested by the police as suspects in a case of illegal possession and use of explosives, after they allegedly threw flares on the basketball court of the Paralimni high school.

According to the police, on Thursday 20 students at the school hung anti-Turkish banners and held Greek flags in a protest against last week’s reopening of a part of Varosha.
The two students arrested were filmed while lighting and throwing flares. The video, which was later shared on social media, attracted the attention of the authorities.

The school principal also reported the case to the police. After examining the video, the two students were eventually arrested and later released.

They now face criminal charges, as possession and use of explosive is considered a serious offence and normally involves a prison sentence. However, the attorney general will have to give his consent before the students are taken to court.

A meeting between the attorney general and the police is expected to take place on Thursday.
