People in Gaza have access to the internet? I would have never guessed Israel would allow it.
SKY NEWS reports they talked to passengers just now. They have NOT been boarded and are on their way to Gaza
Israeli radio is reporting that Israeli navy ships have stopped and boarded the Rachel Corrie, the Irish ship seeking to run the Gaza blockade
Unconfirmed reports had it heading towards the port of Ashdod in Israel

I was under the impression that Turkey would escort Turkish ships only.
But the Rachel Corrie left port from Turkey or Cyprus or from where?
Isreali soldiers boarded the ‘Rachel Corrie’ Gaza aid boat today and arrested the leftist and Islamist passengers.
At about 5:50 am on Saturday, the first reports came in over Twitter that the ‘Rachel Corrie’ had been boarded close to Gaza. Earlier the activists reported that their radar had been jammed, however their Twitter accounts continued to operate
The activists reported that three boats were following them for about twenty minutes and then that they had been boarded
The passengers are said to be under arrest
*****Statement from Greta Berlin on Aljazeera was #RachelCorrie still going to #Gaza **** Comms are down at the moment..#Gaza #Flotilla
freegazaorg We have been trying every two minutes to contact passengers. No answer. #Flotilla
Mondoweiss RT @IDFSpokesperson: Contrary to false reports the IDF has not boarded the Rachel Corrie, ship ~50 miles from shore. #Flotilla
