A Series of Killings in Cyprus Targeting Young Migrant Women and Girls

Nicosia, 4 May 2019 (IOM)*The International Organization for Migration (IOM) is deeply saddened by the recent news regarding a series of killings in Cyprus targeting young migrant women and girls and regrets the terrible loss of life. 


Migrants, particularly migrant women, often find themselves in situations of vulnerability.

These shocking revelations highlight the need for strengthened capacity to provide protection and support to migrants and victims of violence, as well as strategies to combat the exploitation of migrant workers.

Further cooperative efforts are also needed to enhance inclusion and promote integration of migrants into local society and to enable receiving communities to harness the positive contributions that migrants make.
