Norway wants answers on Israeli seizure of boat trying to break Gaza blockade

Norway wants answers on Israeli seizure of boat trying to break Gaza blockade
World  - Norway is calling on Israel to explain the seizure of a Norwegian-flagged ship on Sunday attempting to break the maritime blockade on the Gaza Strip.

"We have asked the Israeli authorities to clarify the circumstances around the seizure of the vessel and the legal basis for the intervention," Reuters quotes a Norwegian foreign ministry spokesman saying.

The ministry says it is providing consular help to the five Norwegians who were among the 22 passengers aboard the ship.

The "Return" was the first of two ships in a "Freedom Flotilla" trying to break Israel's maritime blockade on Gaza.
