Gaza flotilla ready to sail

An organiser of the flotilla carrying tonnes of supplies for the Gaza Strip says the ships will sail for the blockaded territory today. If they leave from off Cyprus on schedule, they will reach the area tonight.

Israel says they will be intercepted and towed to an Israeli port and activists will be given the choice of deportation or jail.

The cargo will be distributed in Gaza after a security check.
