Cyprus deports six Frenchmen detained at airport on suspicion of extremist links amid fears they were heading for Syria

Cyprus today deported six French citizens who had been detained at the island’s main airport on suspicion of extremist links – but were later said not to be a danger.But police in France said all six were known to the authorities there and that three of them were subject to an ‘S File’, meaning they were suspected of links to a terrorist group.The six – five men of Turkish descent and one of Algerian origin – were detained on Saturday evening after arriving at Larnaca Airport on a flight from Basel in Switzerland, police said.Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou said yesterday that there was no indication they had planned to stay in Cyprus but were more likely in transit, without specifying if they were headed for Syria.At the time, Mr Nicolaou said Cyprus had information ‘suggesting that they have strong links to terrorist groups’.Yet police said today that the men were not deemed terrorists – but were being sent back to Switzerland after being denied entry into the country.‘These people are not considered terrorists but we had our reasons for denying them entry and they are being sent back today,’ police spokesman Andreas Angelides told Agence France-Presse.‘For certain reasons and reasons of security, and based on the laws of the republic, we did not allow them to enter the country.’Cypriot police said this evening that the six men, who were unescorted, left on a flight bound for Basel. 39 kata lagi
