Chicago activists condemn Israel's flotilla raid

June 1, 2010 (CHICAGO)

Nine people died in the attack against a Turkish humanitarian relief ship headed to the Palestinian Gaza Strip.

Israel says it was acting in self-defense, and on Thursday began deporting nearly 700 foreign detainees it took into custody during the raid. Among those is Chicago attorney Fatima Mohammadi. Her family says she's OK, and could be back in the U.S. in the next few days.
