Hawaii resident Col. Ann Wright on board flotilla

From the International Solidarity Movement:
The names of the dead are not yet known. The flotilla passengers included retired US diplomats Amb. Edward Peck and Col. Ann Wright as well as humanitarian aid and human rights workers, several Members of Parliament from Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Turkey, Malaysia, and Palestinian Members of the Knesset.
It must have been the other passengers, then, who attacked the commandos with pipes and bats and threw one overboard and another down 30 feet to a lower deck and took their live ammo handguns and started shooting.
Maybe the ambassadors forgot to tell everyone just to put their hands up.
