A Dutch court has cleared the way for 14-year-old Laura Dekker to set sail on a risky solo voyage around the world. Judges at Middelburg's family court have lifted a guardianship order imposed on Dekker last year after she said she wanted to set sail alone around the world. (AP Photo/ Evert-Jan Daniels)
