Muslims crossed the border from North Cyprus to the south for their annual pilgrimage to Hala Sultan Tekke, a prominent Muslim shrine in Larnaca.

Cyprus police and UNFICYP personnel are facilitating the transportation of the pilgrims to and from the shrine.

The pilgrimage is organised to celebrate the Muslim feast of Eid Al Adha or Kurban Bayram.

Deputy police spokesman Stelios Stylianos told CNA that security measures will be taken during the transportation of the pilgrims to and from the mosque and during their stay there.
