Ireland’s Ambassador to Israel Breifne O’Reilly met Murphy at a holding facility at the weekend where she and fellow political activists were reportedly refusing to sign deportation order forms. Murphy is expected to be deported within says however.
According to The Irish Times over 100 foreign activists have been detained as part of the 'flotilla' protest, which came about after a plan to breach Israel’s naval blockade of Gaza was halted by Greece. The Greek action prevented a flotilla of ships from sailing to the territory.
