Greek coastguard intercepts Gaza aid ship

Activists vow not to give up hope of setting sail for blockaded territory.

    The Greek coastguard has intercepted a Canadian ship which had set sail for Gaza carrying activists and medicine.

    Greece has banned an aid flotilla from leaving its ports, even though the ships will be sailing into international waters.

    Al Jazeera's Jamal El Shayyal met the activists in Athens, the Greek capital.
