Palestinian children hold up flowers during a protest against the Israeli naval commando raid on a flotilla attempting to break the blockade on Gaza, at the port in Gaza City, Wednesday, June 2, 2010. Palestinians declared a three day general strike following Israel's deadly naval raid on an aid flotilla bound for the blockaded Gaza Strip on Monday, May 31, 2010. Despite the widespread outcry in the Arab and Muslim world over the violent sea raid, the Palestinians were to resume their indirect peace talks with Israel later Wednesday. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was to meet at his Ramallah headquarters with George Mitchell, the U.S. envoy who has been shuttling between Palestinians and Israelis for the past month.
