Two Lebanese nationals and one Syrian national were arrested in northern Lebanon. They are accused of being involved in human trafficking for the island of Cyprus, according to a statement from the Internal Security Forces.

The latter are said to have smuggled more than 60 people to Cyprus, mostly Syrians, from the town of al-Abdeh, still in northern Lebanon, for 2000 dollars each.

This information comes at a time when many individuals are trying to board real boat people from Lebanon to the island of Cyprus, considered to be the gateway to the European Union.
