On board the Freedom Flotilla - Passenger List

June 1, 2010 5:28 P.M. (Updated: June 25, 2010 12:13 P.M.)
Bethlehem - Ma'an - As governments coordinate with Israel to determine the fate of their nationals on board an aid convoy destined for Gaza that was attacked by Israeli forces, the UK's Times Online released a list of known passengers on board, while the Free Gaza Movement, one of the organizers, listed some of its participants.

Many activists refused to identify themselves to Israeli authorities, with 629 refusing voluntarily deportation and choosing to remain in Israeli custody across the country.

The majority on board were Turkish nationals, counting roughly 400 participants. The names of the at least 10 activists killed by Israeli forces during the attack have yet to be released.
