Thousands of mourners yesterday attended the funerals of eight men killed in the Israeli naval raid on a Turkish ship carrying pro-Palestinian activists trying to break the Gaza blockade.

May God bless your martyrdom" – came on a day that the country's President Abdullah Gul said "Israel made one of the greatest mistakes in its history."

The men, seven Turks and a US citizen of Turkish origin, ranged in ages from 19 to 60. A ninth man was due to be buried today.
