French pro-Palestinian activists say a pleasure craft linked to a flotilla banned from sailing from Greek ports to the Gaza Strip has left Greek waters and is on its way.

Jean-Claude Lefort, a spokesman for the group, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the “Dignite-Al Karama” left port near Athens early Monday and has reached international waters. On board are eight activists and two crew members.

It is the first and so far only boat linked to the flotilla. Other boats, including one other French boat, have been blocked by Greek authorities.

Greek authorities say they are looking into the report.
