Viva Palestina convoy: ready to sail for Egypt

'Following week long negotiations with the Egyptian government, the Viva Palestina convoy has been given permission to sail to Egypt and logistical preparations for travel to Al-Arish are now underway. They are expected to set sail on sunday morning.

The ship will pass the exact place in international waters where Israel boarded the Mavi Marmara in May and killed nine Turkish humanitarians on board as they attempted to sail to Gaza to deliver aid.

Those on board the ship, including 40 survivors of the Mavi Marmara attack, will throw a wreath into the sea to commemorate those killed by Israeli troops.'
