The first six Greek citizens, members of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla raided by Israeli commandos early on Monday, arrived at Athens' International Airport on Tuesday morning.
Yet there are still 31 Greeks who remain detained in Israel along with dozens of other activists. Foreign Ministry Spokesman Grigoris Delavekouras said that the Greek embassy in Tel Aviv was working with the Israeli authorities to gain access to the other Greek citizens, permission for which has yet to be given.
