The US boat slated to participate in the flotilla to Gaza was taken under armed escort to a Greek Coast Guard base Friday night after being intercepted at sea, organizers said.

The boat, The Audacity of Hope, left an Athens-area port earlier in the day without authorization, saying that it was determined to reach Gaza.
