Nicosia, Dec 5 (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 5th Dec, 2021 ) :A Syrian man is to go on trial in Cyprus for the murder of two foreign women whose bodies were unearthed Sunday in the grounds of a mountain village home, police said.
"Police used all available means... to locate them, but if you look at the ground, the depth and the surface, it is clear it would have been impossible to find them without his indication," police chief Stelio Papatheodorou told reporters.
"According to the suspect, he was the only one who committed the crime, and according to him, he shot them with a hunting gun," the police chief said, without giving a motive.
In 2021, police in Cyprus, which normally has a low serious crime rate, faced charges of negligence and racism over the disappearance of seven foreign women and children who were victims of a serial killer.
