The story of a Lebanese survivor from the boat that sank off Java Island last September

When boat carrying asylum seekers sank off Indonesia's coast late last year, killing more than 40 people, the story caught the eye for reasons beyond the death and tragedy. The boat carried Iraqis and Iranians, as so many boats of asylum seekers had done over the past decade or so. 

But, oddly, it also carried many Lebanese, not a group that has tended to turn up on those boats in these times. That, in turn, has led to another very unusual twist in the tale.
