There is evidence pointing to firearms being thrown overboard by passengers of the Mavi Marmara before it was boarded. Investigators found gun-sights and cartridge-magazines not fitting IDF weapons in a search of the ship, Israel Radio quoted IDF sources saying Friday morning.

Coded messages apparently referring to scenarios of soldier-kidnapping and of soldier fatalities were also found on board the ship, according to the report.
