Greek Cypriot authorities tracked the migrants’ 20-meter (65-foot) craft early Monday off the island’s northwestern coastline.

A marine police vessel was dispatched to escort it to a harbor where the 118 men, nine minors and four women disembarked.

The migrants will be taken to a reception center on the capital Nicosia’s outskirts.

Cyprus’ northern coastline is at its closest around 40 miles (65 kilometers) from Turkey’s southern coast.

Greek Cypriot officials say most migrants arriving on Cyprus depart from Turkey.
