    Greek authorities on Saturday arrested the American captain of a boat in the flotilla that had planned to set sail for Gaza in protest of the Israeli naval blockade. A judge said that the boat, The Audacity of Hope, was not carrying proper safety equipment and charged captain John Klusmire with a felony, for allegedly "disturbing sea traffic and endangering passengers.” After waiting a week for authorization, the flotilla had decided to set sail without it, but after 20 minutes the American boat was stopped and escorted back.
