Cyprus beefs up efforts to stop irregular migration, patrol off Lebanon

        A Cypriot law enforcement vessel was off the coast of Lebanon on Wednesday amid reports Cyprus was beefing up efforts to prevent Syrian refugees reaching the island on small boats.
        
        An advocacy group reported that up to five boatloads of refugees were being prevented from sailing onward because of the presence of the vessel. Authorities in Cyprus declined comment.
        
        Nicosia last weekend announced it was suspending the processing of asylum applications amid a sharp increase in the number of Syrians arriving in Cyprus from Lebanon. It wants its European Union partners to reconsider the status of Syria, now out of bounds for returns.
        
        One Cypriot maritime police patrol vessel, the Evagoras, was seen on ship tracking websites in international waters off the coast of Tripoli in Lebanon.
