Greek Cyprus police hold 3 for media boss murder

Police in Greek Cyprus have arrested three men in connection with the murder of local media boss Andis Hadjicostis, gunned down outside his home on Jan. 11, authorities said.

The men, taken into custody overnight, were Greek Cypriots from Nicosia, the island's capital. They have not been charged and authorities will seek a court order later on Friday to keep them in custody for further questioning.

Hadjicostis, 42, was CEO of the Dias Media Group, one of the largest and most influential on the Mediterranean island. He was shot dead with a sawn-off shotgun by two assailants who fled on a motorcycle.
