Lebanon ship not headed towards Gaza....

Thanks to Cyprus...
A ship carrying women activists and aid will no longer head to Gaza via Cyprus from Lebanon on Sunday, the organisers said, after Nicosia announced it would not allow the vessel to sail from its ports.

"We will not embark tomorrow," Samar al-Hajj told Reuters. "We are working to find another place (port to sail from). There are obstacles, difficulties. We won't give up easily," she said.

Cypriot police said Friday the arrival and departure of ships to or from Gaza through Cyprus ports was prohibited, prompting the Lebanese transport minister to revoke permission for the ship to sail there, according to the organisers.
