Spanish Embassy in Greece Occupied by Gaza Flotilla Protesters

Protesters occupied Spain’s embassy in Athens in support of a demand that ships be allowed to sail to the Gaza Strip from Greek ports, an embassy spokeswoman said.

About seven protesters entered the embassy at 12:30 p.m., the spokeswoman, who declined to be identified, said by telephone. The group, who would have been with a flotilla that was prevented from setting sail at the weekend, want Spain to support the lifting of a Greek government ban on ships leaving the country’s ports bound for Gaza, the spokeswoman said.
