Hoping and waiting…


British nationals held by Israel after the storming of the aid flotilla bound for Gaza are expected to start arriving home today.

Twenty-five Britons arrived on three planes, which touched down at Istanbul airport between 2.40am and 3.10am according to John Reilly, a spokesman for the British embassy in Istanbul.

“Everyone was OK, but they were tired and stressed,” he said, adding that they were given free accomodation in an Istanbul hotel by the state-owned Turkish Airlines, which has also offered each of them a free ticket back to London.
