POLICE believe foul play to be behind the deaths of two migrant workers, who perished in a blaze yesterday morning.
The fire broke out at around 5am in the bedroom of a fourth-floor flat on Prevezis Street in downtown Nicosia.
Inside the flat, firefighters found the bodies of a man, 39, and a 35-year-old woman, both from the Philippines, who are believed to have been in a relationship.
“Initial indications point to a criminal act,” said Nicosia CID chief Kypros Michaelides. “The fire is not accidental.”
The couple were found lying next to each other on the floor of one of the bedrooms.
Fire service spokesman Marios Kyprianou said the door to the apartment was open when the firemen got there.Read More
