Gaza aid flotilla delayed

Ships remain near Cyprus after Israel threatens force to stop them reaching Gaza.

    A flotilla of aid ships heading to the Gaza Strip has been delayed for another day.

    The ships are now in the Mediterranean Sea, near Cyprus, with hundreds of pro-Palestinian activists on board.

    They are waiting for some European politicians to join them. There are also reports that the Cypriot authorities are preventing the politicians from leaving land to join the ships further out to sea.

    Mohamed Vall has been hearing why the campaigners are so determined.
