Cypriot Authorities  Intercept Immigrant Boats - 2003-06-30


Cypriot authorities have intercepted two fishing boats with 34 illegal immigrants on board headed towards an undisclosed European country.

Officials say none of the immigrants carried identification or travel documents, but authorities believe the migrants may be from a country in the Middle East.

Cyprus officials say the vessels were towed to a fishing shelter where police are trying to determine the identities of the immigrants.
