The Israeli Navy has intercepted the Swedish boat "The Marianne", part of the Freedom Flotilla Coalition, in International waters at 05:11 AM Gaza time (GMT +3) and forced it to redirect to the nearest Israeli port of Ashdod. The coalition was on its way to Gaza to deliver aid. In a statement immediately afterward, the Freedom Flotilla Coalition accused the Israeli government of “state piracy in international waters."
