Israel Rams Relief Boat

The Dignity was bringing medical relief when it was hit and severely damaged. Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor says it's "absurd" that the boat was intentionally rammed. CNN correspondent Karl Penhaul was on board when it happened.
Penhaul said at least two Israeli patrol boats had shadowed the Dignity for about half an hour before the collision, moving around the vessel on all sides. One of the patrol boats then shined its spotlight on the Dignity while the other, with its lights off, "very severely rammed" the boat.
