21 Gaza Flotilla Activists Still In Israeli Jail
Agence France-Presse

A group of 21 activists who tried to sail to Gaza in breach of an Israeli blockade of the territory remain in Israeli custody, pending legal proceedings, the interior ministry said on Sunday.

There are 21 passengers detained who refused to be expelled immediately and are engaged in proceedings against their deportation before an Israeli judge, interior ministry spokeswoman Sabine Haddad told AFP.

Only after these proceedings are complete can they be deported, she said.

The 21 activists were among 27 passengers and crew aboard two ships intercepted by the Israeli navy as they tried to run the blockade of the Gaza Strip.
