    Possible. Blasts like this in Limassol are always crime related (as opposed to terrorism related).

    There's 3 likely possibilities:

    1) They didn't pay their protection money.
    2) A competitor doesn't like them existing.
    3) Their business was failing and they needed the insurance.

    20 years ago such blasts were common in Limassol, for the last few years they had been rare, in the last year they've become very common again, almost one a week. Nobody is ever injured and they're always in the middle of the night. Normally though, it's either a betting shop, hairdresser/beauty salon or gym that's targeted. Occasionally bars or restaurants. This is the first one I've seen in this sector. The shop just sold electric bikes and cars, which makes me think it's probably option 3, although they haven't actually been open long.

    The insurance company is next door, their offices are hardly affected, it was the bike shop that was targeted.

    One worrying aspect is that the betting shop was hit as collateral damage, which means the perpetrators will be far better off if the police catch them before the owners of the betting shop...

    Both Greeks and Turks have a habit of pushing the limits of revenge or competition. By the way, John Pettit aka Colonel states that none of them can drive. (Pettit owns much of the road systems the world over)

    A major Cyprus "businessman" was shot dead by contract killers last yeay in Ayia Napa. Since then there's been a hig profile morder of a rival of his and bombing of businesses, mainly in Nicosia and Limassol have increased sharply. Seems there's some kind of turf war going on atm.

    The police here are not normally overstretched, apart from this stuff, the country has a very very low crime rate, crimes against ordinary people are very rare. It'll be interesting to see if they manage to do anything about this, or whether there's been some high level bungs.

    Why move all the way out there just to live in a bomb-ravaged shithole?

    You could have just moved to Belfast and got the same experience.

    Haw haw haw.
