The military aircraft brought 31 Greeks, 3 Frenchmen and one US national released by Israeli authorities, the Greek Air Force said.They were welcomed early Thursday at Elefsina airport by scores of relatives and supporters, after a three-hour flight. Six more Greeks returned Tuesday.
Greeks on the ships have said commandos assaulted and electrocuted them during the attack, even though they put up no resistance. They also accused Israeli authorities of beating activists in custody.
