Update on the "Mariam"

Yesterday I wondered whatever happened to the "Mariam" or "Virgin Mary" or "St. Mary" ship that supposedly had left Lebanon two weekends ago.

Today, Palestine Press Agency quotes the leader of the ship, Samar Haj, as saying that they hope to obtain permission within the next few hours to sail, and then be able to leave in the next few days.
