Israeli officials bring worldwide condemnation upon themselves as they block aid to Gaza.

Three Irish nationals who are aboard a ship that was intending to join the aid convoy attacked by Israeli commandos this morning have been reported as safe.

The status of a further five Irish nationals who were with the six-vessel convoy taking aid to the Gaza Strip is being investigated by the Department of Foreign Affairs.

At least 10 people were killed in clashes this morning between the Israeli navy and a convoy of ships trying to bring aid to the territory, Israel’s Channel Two television news said.
