French Gaza flotilla boat sails from Greece

A source in the Greek coast guard said late on Saturday that a French boat «Al-Karama», which was part of a Gaza-bound flotilla and was docking in Greece, has set sail to the Alexandria port in Egypt.

The vessel tried to leave Crete towards the Gaza Strip earlier this month, but was stopped by Greek authorities and led back to the coast.

Nine other ships scheduled to sail to Gaza are still docking in Greece and have not received approval to leave for the Strip.
