YESTERDAY, Israel military, under the cover of darkness, stormed a ship in international waters. Of 600 humanitarian activists on board, 45 were parliamentarians from several countries.

Nineteen people, mostly Turkish, have been killed so far and 50 are injured, one of them Irish.

This ship, one of a flotilla of six, was carrying about 10,000 tonnes of humanitarian aid, including wheelchairs, medicines and construction materials, to the besieged 1.5 million people in Gaza.
