According the the Jerusalem Post, the Malaysian representative of the Perdana Global Peace Organization on board the Rachel Corrie: “[S]tated on its website Saturday morning that the ship’s passengers had agreed to let an international force search the ship, before it proceeds to Gaza. The statement said that, while the activists rejected Israel’s right to blockade Gaza, the activists ‘request and invite for an independent international body, preferably inspectors from the the United Nations to board the ship and do the necessary to certify as to the nature of the cargo on board.'”
LATEST: The Rachel Corrie MV was boarded by the Israeli Navy close to Gaza at about 5:50am local time. The passengers are said to be under arrest. We will provide updates as soon as more information becomes is available.
On board the ship, which is carrying humanitarian aid to Gaza, are former UN Assistant Secretary-General Denis Halliday, Malaysian member of Parliament Mohd Nizar bin Zakaria and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Corrigan Maguire and Malaysian barrister Matthias Chang.
The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: There are conflicting reports coming in at this point. The Jerusalem Post also reports that the Rachel Corrie has been boarded and the passengers are said to be under arrest…
However, Haaretz and Sky News are both reporting via Twitter at Free Gaza Org that the Rachel Corrie has not been boarded and is closing in on the Gaza coast… – SJH
