Greek protest delays Israel-bound flight

Officials at Athens International Airport say an Israel-bound flight was delayed for at least half an hour after protesters blocked check-in counters at the airport.
Members of a Communist-backed labor union say they blocked five El-Al counters for two hours to protest the Israeli blockade of Gaza and the Jewish state's "oppressive policies."
The protest occurred as a Libya-chartered ship carrying aid to the Gaza Strip was due to sail to an Egyptian port to avoid challenging an Israeli naval blockade of the Palestinian territory.
Athens airport officials say El-Al flight 542 to Tel-Aviv is due to depart from Athens Wednesday after the protest ended without incident.
