Irish vessel 'shadowed by Israeli gunboats'

Israeli ships are now shadowing the latest aid ship trying to break the blockade of Gaza. Israeli officials had warned they would not let the ship, called MV Rachel Corrie, reach Gaza.

Mary Hughes Hughes Thompson of the Free Gaza Movement who is in Cyprus, says that she has lost contact with the vessel which she says was being "shadowed by three Israeli gunboats".
