Hours after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu returned to Israel from Canada to address the international outcry over the Navy's response to the flotilla aiming to break the Gaza blockade, the cabinet convened Tuesday to discuss the matter in depth.

According to Channel 10, Navy Commander Admiral Eliezer Marom revealed during the meeting that thousands of dollars had been found in the pockets of several of the activists aboard the <i>Mavi Marmara</i>. This, Marom said, led him to believe that some of those aboard the ship were mercenaries who were paid right before boarding the ship to head the confrontation with the Israeli soldiers when that confrontation would occur.
