A group of international activists says it will defy an Israeli blockade and send a boat with medical supplies to war-hit Gaza from Cyprus. Free Gaza Group spokeswoman Caoimhe Butterly says their 20-meter yacht Dignity will leave Larnaca port around 5 p.m. (1400GMT) Monday with 3.5 tons of donated supplies. She says the yacht will carry 16 passengers, including former US Congresswoman Cynthia Mckinney, Cypriot lawmaker and doctor Eleni Theocharous and activists from Britain, Australia, Ireland and Tunisia.
