Scott Hamann, the Maine filmmaker detained after Israeli commandos attacked a flotilla of Gaza bound ships he was videotaping, arrived at Logan Airport in Boston tonight after being expelled from Israel.

Hamann, who spoke by phone on the drive back to his home in South Portland, said he was fine and unharmed. He was greeted at the airport by his family and girlfriend.

“I am just relieved to be home,” said Hamann.

He flew first to Chicago earlier today with nine other Americans who were expelled from Israel.

Nine pro-Palestian activists were killed in Monday’s raid by Israel commandos attempting to keep the Iranian-backed Hamas group from getting weapons.
