124 Gaza aid flotilla activists arrive in Jordan
ALLENBY BRIDGE, Jordan — Dozens of pro-Palestinian activists detained in the Israeli raid on the Gaza aid flotilla have arrived in Jordan after being deported from neighboring Israel.
The 124 activists from 12 Muslim nations — most of them without diplomatic ties with Israel — crossed the Jordan River at sunrise Wednesday aboard five Jordanian buses.
Jordanian Government spokesman Nabil Al-Sharif says there were 30 Jordanians in the group.
Jordan is one of two Arab nations with a signed peace treaty with Israel.
