British tourist killed in Ayia Napa stabbing

Police are seeking attackers who killed a British tourist in a stabbing attack in Ayia Napa with his friend being seriously wounded.

The two men were attacked by two other men in the early hours of Sunday.
George Lowe, 22, from Dartford in Kent, died when he was stabbed in the neck while his friend was knifed in the back. His injuries are reported to be not life-threatening.

The party resort was packed with locals and tourists at the time during a bank holiday weekend in Cyprus.

Famagusta police said the pair were attacked by two men with knives shortly after getting involved in a shoving match with one of them.

District assistant police chief, Georgios Economou, said they are still searching for the attackers, who, according to witness accounts, appeared to be foreign nationals.

Police said there is no suspicion that the attack was terrorism related.
