Ship to Gaza to file complaint with Israeli police

The 11 Swedish activists who sailed aboard the Ship to Gaza aid flotilla this spring plan to file a complaint against the state of Israel and their armed forces for illegal deprivation of liberty and assault, reports news agency TT. In a press release, the Ship to Gaza organization says it will file the complaint with Tel Aviv police on Monday.

On May 31, Israeli soldiers raided the aid convoy and nine people were killed. Israel has been the target of international criticism for using disproportionate violence to respond to the ship's breach of their blockade.
