Greenpeace activists have boarded the 290-meter long coal ship Orient Venus on the high seas. Joanna Jones, Mor Levy and Jense Loewe arrived in inflatable boats and climbed up the side of the huge vessel. They have built a camp on the ship's mast in order to stop the coal shipment from entering Israel. Police have boarded the ship and are attempting to take the activists down.

UPDATE: Police eventually arrested the activists but they released yesterday.
