Gaza blockade easing 'worth' flotilla lives


Israel has eased its blockade on the Gaza Strip, not by as much as some would like, but the Middle East envoy Tony Blair has said it is a "good start".

It follows the death of nine Turkish activists killed by Israeli soldiers when they raided an aid flotilla as it tried to break the naval blockade on Gaza.

Kenneth O'Keefe was on that boat and he was involved in the violence. Sarah Montague asks him whether it was worth it.
