Play associated audio

WASHINGTON (AP) Dozens of people outraged by a deadly Israeli commando raid on ships taking humanitarian aid to the blockaded Gaza Strip have protesed outside the Israeli Embassy in Washington.

Demonstrators formed long lines and walked in circles Monday afternoon, chanting "End the siege in Gaza now" and "Shut down the embassy! Stop Israeli piracy!"

Some held large Palestinian flags and signs reading "One more Israeli massacre."

Israel said the activists attacked its commandos as they boarded the six ships taking tons of supplies to Gaza, while the flotilla's organizers said the Israeli forces opened fire first.

The group planned to move over to the White House in the evening.
