A group of Americans have left for Athens to join a flotilla of ships planning to challenge Israel's naval blockade of the Gaza Strip.

The 36 American participants, as well as four crew members and nine journalists, are planning to sail on the American-flagged boat The Audacity of Hope in the 10-ship flotilla. One-quarter of the US participants reportedly are Jewish. The US ship will have no humanitarian aid or other cargo on board, according to reports.

Part of the flotilla is scheduled to set sail from Athens on June 25.
