New aid ship leaves for Gaza

Captain of Libyan-sponsored vessel says he is heading for Palestine despite Israeli warnings.

    A Libyan-sponsored aid ship has set sail from Greece and, according to the captain, is heading towards Gaza.

    Israel, however, says it had reached an agreement with Greece and Moldova to stop the vessel

    The ship left the port of Lavrio on Saturday, but organisers say it will take 70 to 80 hours to reach Gaza's shores.
