The French flotilla ship Dignity was allowed to leave a Greek port in Crete on Saturday after having been detained by the Greek coast guard while refueling on Thursday.

While the Greek coastguard said Dignity's destination was the island of Rhodes, an activist on board said the ship still planned on sailing for the Gaza Strip.

"Our final destination is Gaza, we hope that we will reach that destination, but for the time being we are sailing within the Greek waters," one of ten pro-Palestinian activists among Dignity said.
