Replica Phoenician ship ends round-Africa journey

The replica of a Phoenician ship from 600BC has arrived home in western Syria after a two-year voyage circumnavigating the coast of Africa.

The 20,000 mile journey was a recreation of the first supposed voyage around the continent, some 2,000 years before an attempt was actually documented.

Lina Sinjab reports from Arwad Island.
