Explosives were found near the country house of Cyprus President Demetris Christofias and he has been advised not to go there before investigations into the case are completed, police sources said on Saturday.
They said three kilograms of explosives had been placed under a tree on the road leading to the president’s house in Kellaki village, near the southern city of Limassol.

“A car without registration plates was seen stopping near a tree on the road to the president’s house and a passenger dropped a bag under it. When the place was searched the explosives were found”, the police sources said.
No detonating device was connected to the explosives but a detonator was found among them which could be triggered remotely by a mobile phone or another electronic device.
There was no immediate official word on the case and the news was received with disbelief by the public, as violence against politicians in Cyprus is virtually unheard off.
President Christofias was scheduled to go to his country house in the afternoon but he changed his plans, sources said.
