Mom against daughter's plan to circle globe

AMSTERDAM Babs Muller is quoted in the Volkskrant daily as saying her 13-year-old daughter has the technical ability to complete the voyage but that the teenager is not yet grown-up enough.

Muller also says she is worried about her daughter's safety in ports in some developing countries.

The interview published Saturday was Muller's first public comment on the plan.

A Dutch court on Aug. 28 ordered Laura placed in the custody of child care authorities for two months and appointed a child psychologist to report on her capacity to cope with the risks of the voyage and possible harm of two years of isolation.
