NICOSIA, Cyprus — A spokeswoman for a pro-Palestinian group behind several attempts to breach Israel's Gaza blockade by ship said it will shut down the group's Cyprus headquarters on Saturday, but won't stop sending ships to the Palestinian territory.

Greta Berlin of the Free Gaza Movement said the group will close the office because of Cyprus' decision to ban any ships from sailing to Gaza from its shore.
