Police arrest man wanted in deadly car ambush

Suspect arrested in death of Syrian man, woman also questioned by police


A man wanted in connection with a deadly ambush in downtown Nicosia was arrested on Wednesday.

Police said a 22-year-old Syrian man was arrested on Wednesday evening in connection with a murder investigation, following a suspected deadly car ambush in Agios Antonios earlier this month.

The suspect has been implicated in the death of 21-year-old Alsweidani Ahmad, also from Syria, after he was shot in the head during what has been described as a car ambush.

Other individuals present at the scene have not been identified as suspects while two vehicles were confiscated for further testing.

Local media said another female was briefly detained for questioning and later released after police said she had provided shelter for the suspect.

Investigators who spoke with a witness believe the shooting took place after the two Syrians got crossed with each other.
