Gaza flotilla set to leave Turkey

Boats will link up with others off the coast of Cyprus before heading to Gaza.

    Three boats that will form part of a flotilla hoping to break the siege of Gaza are due to leave a port in southern Turkey.

    They are to link up with six other vessels off the coast of Cyprus, before heading to the Gaza Strip. But Israel says it will stop the flotilla before it reaches its destination - and arrest all on board.
