rachel corrie: 480 to a Beersheba prison
"We have not made a final decision yet, but 'Rachel Corrie' is coming. She left Malta on her way to Gaza the night before last and she should be coming near Crete today," Bomse said, adding she was proceeding slowly.
About 480 of the foreign activists who were stopped by Israel on the high seas while sailing to Gaza were transferred over night to a prison in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba where they were being questioned.
Another 48 activists had already been transported to Israel's Ben Gurion International Airport near Tel Aviv to be expelled abroad.
