Most members of a group of foreign peace activists seized at sea by the Navy remained in custody Friday, three days after their failed attempt to enter the Gaza Strip, relatives and supporters said. In the Free Gaze movement's most recent attempt to enter the Strip, 21 activists set sail from Cyprus on a ship laden with humanitarian aid. The Navy intercepted the ship Tuesday after it ignored repeated messages saying it would not be allowed to enter Gaza waters and ordering it to turn back. Among those still being held Friday were former US representative Cynthia McKinney Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire, said Sandra Law, mother of detained British activist Alex Harrison.
