Lebanese ship to sail for Gaza next week

The organizers of a Lebanese ship aiming to break Israel's Gaza blockade said Thursday that they plan set sail from Lebanon on Sunday.
Samar al-Hajj said the ship, the Mariam, named after the Virgin Mary, will be carrying medicine for the seaside strip. Hajj said all the passengers will be women activists.
Hajj said Lebanon's president, prime minister and parliament speaker refused to meet with her, which appeared to signal the government's lack of support for the venture.
