Democracy Now: Humanitarian Flotilla Ship to Gaza Sabotaged

Saboteurs in Greece have reportedly damaged a second ship that was set to sail from Greece to Gaza as part of a humanitarian flotilla. Organizers of the flotilla said propellers on both ships were damaged. In addition, pipes leading to the engines were damaged to the extent that an explosion might have occurred once the ships set sail, had it gone unnoticed. The U.S.-flagged ship in the flotilla — The Audacity of Hope — is still awaiting permission from Greek authorities to leave port after complaints from an Israeli group prompted its inspection earlier this week. On Thursday, U.S. delegate members will be publicly unveiling the ship to the media.
