"On the first anniversary of the Israeli raid on a flotilla headed to Gaza, organizers of another flotilla planned for June held a news conference Monday that concluded with a minute of silence for the nine activists [murdered] in that raid. ... Mavi Marmara -- owned by the Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation, or IHH -- and five other ships were on their way to Gaza carrying humanitarian aid and about 700 activists from various countries when Israeli [pirates] swarmed aboard it in international waters on the night of May 30-31, 2010. Eight Turks and one American of Turkish origin [were murdered]." (05/30/11)
