The Canadian boat slated to participate in the flotilla to Gaza reportedly left its port in Greece in order to head toward the Strip.

The ship, called Tahrir after the central Cairo square where Egypt's revolution took place, has been held by Greek authorities along with several other boats since Greece announced its prohibition on any ship leaving Greek waters for Gaza. An American-flagged ship, The Audacity of Hope, attempted to leave its Greek port on Friday without permission but was apprehended by the Helenic Coast Guard and its captain arrested.
