A Malaysian ship carrying aid for Rohingya Muslims has arrived in Myanmar’s commercial capital Yangon, amid protests against the Muslim minority. The aid ship is carrying food and emergency supplies for thousands of Rohingya who have fled a bloody army crackdown.

Yet it still asserts control over Gaza’s airspace and coastline. On that day, 700 unarmed peace activists were on board the boat. Including writers, journalists, women and children “I was hiding in a room with my child. The gun shots were landing down right on top of the ceiling. Helicopters were also landing and taking off.
