The Norwegian ship S.S. Sekvic, which had been refused fresh supplies of water at Port Sudan and prohibited from loading cargo for Europe because she plied the Israel trade, returned to Elath today. The Norwegian vessel will take on adequate water supplies at the Israeli port and will return home without cargo.
