Ferry to run between Israel and Famagusta in north Cyprus

Kibrisli newspaper reports that a ferry is expected to carry almost 100 000 tourists per year from Israel to Famagusta and is planned to start in December. A 25-person delegation from Israel will arrive in north Cyprus next week in order to finalise the agreement.

This is a major snub to  international law which forbids such a journey and could open up the possibility of other countries ignoring this ban. It will be interesting to see what response this will get and also to see how much it would cost for a return trip.
