Israeli troops have boarded another aid ship bound for the Gaza Strip.

However, unlike the deadly confrontation five days agowhen Israeli troops stormed the Mavi Marmara aid boat, killing seven people, there was no violence.

The crew aboard the Irish aid ship, the MV Rachel Corrie, surrendered quietly on Saturday.

Israeli forces boarded the ship, and escorted it into port, where the aid will be processed.
