Activists on the Greek island of Corfu on Saturday flashed peace signs and cheered from the Stefano Chiarini ship and other boats participating in what protesters called the "Freedom Flotilla II." The demonstrators were angry at the Greek authorities' ban on Gaza-bound ships.
Greek authorities said on Friday that ships destined for Gaza -- which
involves transit through international waters -- were prohibited from
leaving Greek ports.
