SAANICH – A Victoria peace activist who was aboard an aid ship attacked by Israeli commandos off Gaza last week says he was able to smuggle out photos of the raid.
Kevin Neish says he hid a camera card on his body before he was seized by Israeli soldiers.
Some of Kevin Neish’s photos were published in the Turkish English-language newspaper, Hurriyet and other media outlets throughout the Arab world.
Kevin Neish says he saw dead and wounded people strewn about the vessel, including two who appeared to have been killed with execution-style bullet wounds to their heads.
He says 16 people died in the attack but official reports put the death toll at nine.
