The Israeli Navy stopped a Free Gaza boat from reaching the Gaza Strip overnight Monday, activists said. One person on the boat said the navy threatened passengers that they would be shot at if they did not turn back. The 21 human rights and solidarity workers, representing eleven different countries, set sail from Cyprus Monday morning for Gaza in yet another attempt to break the Israeli blockade of the Palestinian territory.
