Hundreds of mostly Syrian refugees rescued by a cruise liner in the Mediterranean disembarked in Cyprus on Friday, after hours of refusing to budge and demanding to go to Italy.A total of 345 migrants, mainly women and children, had been plucked from a boat in trouble off the coast of Cyprus Thursday by the cruise ship. Some 700 paying passengers disembarked from the 157-meter liner at the port of Limassol, police said, but only 65 of those rescued at sea initially left the ship Thursday. Cyprus is located about 100 kilometers from the shores of war-ravaged Syria.
