Turkish Ship Attacked by Israel Won’t Sail in Next Gaza Flotilla

The Mavi Marmara, the ship on which Israeli commandos killed nine Turkish activists who tried to break the naval blockade of the Gaza Strip last year, won’t sail in a second international flotilla to the Palestinian enclave, the organizers of the planned voyage said.

About 10 ships with representatives from 20 countries will head to Gaza in a renewed attempt to break Israel’s embargo by delivering aid, the group behind the effort, called Freedom Flotilla II, said today in an e-mailed statement.
