Pro-Arabs Say Navy Surrounding 'Free Gaza' Boat

The Navy has surrounded another boat headed for Gaza from Cyprus and sponsored by the pro-Arab Free Gaza movement, the group said. The boat left Cyprus Wednesday and was met by Navy gunboats, who ordered it to return to Cyprus.

Israel allowed the movement to land in Gaza several times since last August but blocked its last attempt after the Cast Lead operation began.
