ATHENS - A pro-Palestinian flotilla hopes to leave Greece early next week to sail to Gaza despite the arrest of the American captain of one of the vessels, organizers said on Saturday.

The convoy of cargo and passenger boats carrying volunteers from countries including the United States, Canada, France and Spain was due to depart at least a week ago but has been held up amid allegations of sabotage.

"Monday will be a day of action where we plan to continue sailing," Adam Shapiro, one of the organizers, told reporters in Athens.

A boat ferrying mostly American activists, The Audacity of Hope, tried to leave left Perama port near Piraeus on Saturday.
