Israeli troops storm Gaza flotilla

Al Jazeera correspondent on board the lead ship reports on the attack.



    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.
