Ship held at Minnesota port for more than month can leave

DULUTH, Minn. (AP) -- The U.S. Coast Guard says an agreement has been reached that will let a German-operated cargo ship leave a Lake Superior port in Minnesota where it had been detained for more than a month due to alleged environmental violations.

Coast Guard spokesman Petty Officer 3rd Class Christopher Yaw said Thursday that an agreement has been reached and that the M/V Cornelia is making preparations to depart the port of Duluth. He says he has no details of the agreement.

The Cornelia was allowed to dock Wednesday after more than a month at anchor just outside the Duluth harbor. A spokeswoman for the Duluth Seaway Port Authority, Adele Yorde, says ship should be ready to depart before noon Friday.
