Cyprus referee's car is blown up

The Irish Football Association are "monitoring developments" in Cyprus after a referee's car was bombed in the country, where Northern Ireland are due to play a friendly on Wednesday.

The IFA have substantiated reports that the car of a Cypriot official – named by the Cyprus Football Association as Leontios Trattos – was damaged by a bomb explosion on Friday morning, leading to all First Division fixtures being cancelled in the country this weekend.
