Israeli navy trails aid ship destined for Gaza

Israeli navy vessels are shadowing a Libyan aid ship that Israel says is trying to break the blockade on Gaza.

The organisers of the shipment, the Gaddafi Foundation, say they still plan to dock in Gaza, despite Israel's request to head to the Egyptian port of El-Arish.

The BBC's Jon Donnison told Peter Dobbie at least four Israeli boats were alongside the Amalthea.
