There were no humanitarian supplies aboard the Mavi Marmara.
Nine activists were killed after they had brutalized and captured three Israeli commandos.
The flotilla consisted of 7 ships. Only 4 carried any cargo.
The Defeny, a cargo ship, carried mostly hospital equipment, beds, wheelchairs, crutches and 4 tons of medicine.
The Defeny cargo was not in containers or properly stowed on pallets. The supplies were thrown in piles where some of it was crushed under its own weight. Many of the medicines were past their expiration dates.
The other 3 cargo ships carried construction equipment, construction materials and rubble from demolitions intended for re-use – old toilets, sinks and the like.
Videotaped interviews with the Captain and a ships officer can be seen at the Israeli Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center website.
