Israel to deport all foreigners seized on Gaza ships

JERUSALEM: Israel said on Tuesday it would immediately deport hundreds of foreign activists seized aboard a Turkish-backed aid flotilla to Gaza in a bloody raid.

In the face of mounting world criticism of Monday's assault, Israeli officials said all 680 activists held would be freed, including two dozen Israel had threatened earlier to prosecute charging they had assaulted its troops.

“It was agreed that the detainees would be deported immediately,” Nir Hefez, a spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said in a written statement to reporters. AGENCIES
