Aid is unloaded…

Aid is unloaded from the Giorgios K in the Lebanese port of Tyre on Saturday. The ship had been chartered by the International Committee of the Red Cross but was anchored in the Cypriot port of Larnaca, after being refused access to the area for two days by Israel. Some 200 tons of urgent humanitarian aid was unloaded, including 200,000 food packages, 50 tons of flour, medication and fuel. A minibus and two all-terrain vehicles were also unloaded. Part of the cargo, mainly the flour and the fuel, is headed for Tyre to replenish dwindling supplies at hospitals.
