AP: Activists sail to bust Israeli sea blockade on Gaza


By Michele Kambas Fri Aug 22, 4:26 AM ET

International activists departed from Cyprus by boat on Friday in an attempt to run an Israeli sea blockade on 1.4 million Palestinians in Gaza.

The 44 activists sailed from the port of Larnaca in two wooden boats at 9:50 a.m. (2:50 a.m. EDT). Hailing from 14 countries, they said they expected to reach the shores of Gaza, patrolled by the Israeli navy, on Saturday.

"It has been 41 years since any boat has traveled in those waters, and we plan to be the first," said U.S. citizen Paul Larudee, one of the organizers of the "Free Gaza" campaign.
