On Sunday the remand of the three Israeli activists who took part in the pro-Palestinian sail was extended.



Yonatan Shapira, Reut Mor and Elazar Elhanan are suspected of incitement, of knowingly aiding an enemy and of violating a legal order.


Judge Orit Hadad of the Ashkelon Magistrate's Court defined the three as "peace activists," but extended their remand nonetheless.


Prior to the arraignment, Shapira said: "Five miles from Israel's international (maritime) border, there were five warships, a helicopter, 10 smaller boats and dozens of soldiers who came to stop us, boarded the ship and took control of 30 activists. Elik was tasered repeatedly."
