The police of Cyprus arrested a man with a knife who tried to access an outdoor stadium where Pope Francis was making a mass in the capital, Nicosia, said a police officer.
"During a record at the GSP entrance (Stadium), a 43-year-old foreigner was arrested, with a knife in power," said the police officer.
A second security source, who requested anonymity, said the knife seemed to be "for personal use" and did not seem to be related to the presence of the Pope in Cyprus. The man, who believes that he is Nigeria, is being questioned.
The Pope is on a three-day visit to the island.Date Of Update: 09 December 2021, 01:49
