Demonstrators march with a giant Palestinian flag at Istiklal avenue at Istanbul in Turkey on Thursday to mark the 8th anniversary of a deadly raid on Turkish-registered Mavi Marmara - part of a flotilla of six vessels seeking to break Israel’s blockade and enter Gaza. The crowd gathered in iconic Istiklal avenue under the banner of the pro-Islamic Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), one of the organisers of the flotilla that tried to break an Israeli sea blockade of the Hamas-controlled Palestinian territory.
