Flotilla captain: Passenger boat sabotaged in Greek port

A ship captain participating in a flotilla scheduled to sail to Gaza this week said on Tuesday that one of the passenger boats was sabotaged in Greek port the previous day.

In a video featured on the Freedom Flotilla's website, captain Thodoris Boukas explains how the sabotage was discovered and said "I clear believe it is sabotage by those who wish the boat not to participate in the Freedom Flotilla."

The video also shows footage shot by a diver of the boat's propellers.

"Today we came here to test the boat, we added some fuel, started the engines, and at some point, one of the engines ceased [to work] as if a rope was tangled in its propeller. That's what we thought in the first place. We looked around, and there was no sign of the rope," Boukas said.
