Arrests follow punch-up at Cyprus convent

Two stabbed as priests and nuns wade in

Build a business case: developing custom apps

A brawl at a Cyprus convent has resulted in two people being stabbed and two cuffed, Reuters reports.

The unseemly scuffle - in which "priests and nuns were involved" - broke out last night at the Metamorphosis tou Sotiros convent, south east of Nicosia. According to police, it was provoked by "a power struggle between rival factions" over control of the convent's "speculated vast wealth". Last December, a nun was assaulted and hospitalised.

The two people injured were laymen, police noted, as were those arrested. A police spokesman told Reuters: "Two required stitches for head injuries inflicted by sharp implements and two were detained for obstructing police." ®
