Seven Syrian refugees, who made it to Cyprus after a long journey, went to a local police station in Larnaca to report their arrival.

According to Cyprus News Agency (CNA), seven men from Syria aged between 18 and 40, arrived in Cyprus through Turkey, where they paid €600 each for the last leg of their journey.

The group of presumptive refugees showed up at Oroklini police station and then transferred to CID Larnaca, where officers registered their biographical information.

The men reportedly said they got a ride in a vehicle from the north into the Republic of Cyprus in the south. Then they walked along the Larnaca-Dhekelia road until they reached the Oroklini police station.

All seven refugees were transferred to Kokkinotrimithia reception centre on Tuesday.
