A flotilla of ships which were heading to the Gaza Strip to deliver 10,000 tons of aid has been attacked by Israeli troops. Nine people were killed and a further 30 have so far been confirmed as being injured.
Israel has said ten of its troops were injured after being attacked by some of the aid workers. The incident occurred whilst the flotilla was 40 miles inside international waters. Israel had initially said the ships would not reach their destination.
Three of the ships have now reached an Israeli port and the aid workers on-board will be deported. An emergency UN Security Council meeting is set to discuss the incident, whilst Israeli actions have been condemned by leaders.
