Anti-Israel protesters delay El Al flight in Athens

Anti-Israel protesters delay El Al flight in Athens --Members of Communist-backed labor union say they blocked five El Al counters for two hours to protest Gaza siege. 14 Jul 2010 An Israel-bound flight was delayed for about two hours at Athens International Airport Wednesday after protesters against the blockade of Gaza blocked check-in counters, airport officials said. Members of a Communist-backed labor union said they blocked five El Al airline counters for two hours to protest the Israeli blockade of Gaza and the Jewish state's oppressive policies. "This was an action taken in solidarity with the Palestinian people and their effort to establish a Palestinian state," union spokesman Giorgos Pontikos told the AP.
