A livestock carrier that had been rumored to be carrying anthrax-infected cattle will not be allowed to dock in Lebanon, a senior source at Lebanese Customs told The Daily Star Sunday.A fuss was made after Turkish media reports said that the ship, laden with cattle infected with anthrax, was heading to Lebanon to dock in Beirut. Even if an agent for the vessel were to present itself, the Rahmeh would not be allowed to dock at the port and would only be allowed to enter Lebanon's territorial waters, the source said, adding that it would then be searched.
