BEIRUT— The organizers of a Lebanese ship hoping to break Israel's Gaza blockade said Sunday that they have postponed the trip after Cyprus refused the vessel entry.

Organizers said they are in contact with Greek authorities to allow the ship to dock there before proceeding to Gaza. They did not give a new departure date.

The ship will carry aid and activists, organizers said.

Israel has urged Lebanon to prevent the vessel from sailing to Gaza.
