Why Israel won’t allow journalists into Gaza

Karl Penhaul from CNN, was …on the [pro-Palestinian activists’] boat – and gave the report …as the events were happening:

the boat while still in international waters has been rammed by Israeli patrol boats, our vessel has been damaged …there’s been some damage to a roof section and to glass windows around the steering area and the captain says that the vessel is taking on a small amount of water, that at this stage is not life threatening but the ship was very severely rammed by one of those Israeli patrol boats, those patrol boats have been following the vessel for the half hour prior to the ramming incident … they rammed the vessel without warning but after the ramming there was a radio message saying the Israeli patrol boat was accusing the Dignity of being involved in terrorist activities.
