WASHINGTON — A former US ambassador aboard a Gaza aid ship seized by Navy commandos is on his way home, his wife said Monday evening.

Edward Peck, 81, of Chevy Chase, Maryland, a Washington suburb, was among activists in the flotilla trying to get humanitarian aid to Gaza, Ann Peck said in a phone interview with The Associated Press.

She said she received a brief e-mail from the Foreign Ministry on Monday informing her that her husband was fine and headed home.

The e-mail said he would likely arrive Tuesday, did not have a cell phone with him and would call from a New York airport when he landed, she said, adding that the airport was not specified.
