A French boat participating in the flotilla hoping to break the blockade of the Gaza Strip was detained along with its crew by Greek authorities in Crete on Thursday, CNN reported.

On Tuesday afternoon, organizers announced that the small French yacht had left waters near Greece with eight passengers on board en-route to Gaza.

CNN quoted Maxime Gimberteau of "A Boat for Gaza" of saying that the Dignity was stopped while attempting to refuel in Crete.
