The Muslim League in the Gaza Strip organized a youth summer swimming competition called "Freedom Flotilla 2," Gaza-based news agency Palestine Today reported.

According to the report, the competition has more than 50 contestants and will include a 400 meter stretch. The name of the contest is reportedly a tribute to those killed on board the Mavi Marmara last year, during the "Freedom Flotilla."
