MARIAM HAMZA WAVES BEFORE DEPARTING FOR IRAQ.
Mariam Hamza waves to her doctor before departing for Iraq after three months for cancer treatment in Amman January 16. The Iraqi girl, who was moved from an Iraqi hospital to Amman's al-Amal Center last October following a campaign by a British member of parliament to have U.N. sanctions against Iraq lifted, was checked into a hospital in Jordan after suffering a cancer relapse. Mariam, who was previously brought from Baghdad to Scotland by MP George Galloway for treatment from leukaemia in 1997, is now blind.
