Cyprus refs angry over bomb attack at home of referee's mother
NICOSIA, Cyprus -- Top officials with the Cyprus Referees' Association are meeting to consider a possible walkout in response to a midnight bomb attack at the home of a referee's mother.
Association chief Michalis Argyrou says one option being weighed at Monday's meeting is to stop officiating matches because referees are fed up following the third bomb attack against one of their own this season.
The Cyprus Football Association condemned the attack against referee Thomas Mouskos' mother's home as "exceedingly cowardly" and an "act of terrorism."
Police said the makeshift, high-yield explosive device went off outside the front door of the 60-year-old woman's Limassol home shortly after midnight.
Senior police officer Ioannis Soteriades said the woman was unharmed because she was in an upstairs bedroom at the time of the blast.
