    Israeli forces have attacked aid ships attempting to break the blockade of Gaza, killing several people.

    Commandos lowered themselves from helicopters and onto the Mavi Marmara - the lead ship in a flotilla of six vessels which are carrying humanitarian aid for the Palestinian territory.

    Al Jazeera's Jamal Elshayyal on board the Mavi Marmara sent this report before communications were cut.
