Greek Halts Second Flotilla Ship
Greek commandos on Monday once again boarded a ship that tried to sneak out of Crete's harbor, headed for Gaza. The crew of the Canadian ship, violating Greek army orders, left the dock at about 6 PM, but a few minutes later Greek soldiers boarded the ship and forced it to turn back. The captain of the Canadian ship was arrested, as was the captain of the American ship that tried to do the same thing several days ago.
Speaking to a reporter, one activist said that the ship managed to get five kilometers out of the harbor before it was turned back.
