BBC News - Israel to co-operate with UN probe into Gaza flotilla

BBC News - Israel to co-operate with UN probe into Gaza flotilla

Israel has announced it will co-operate with a UN investigation into its raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in May. "Israel has nothing to hide, the opposite is true," Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said. The four-member panel, announced by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, will include an Israeli and a Turkish member. The commando raid on the six-ship convoy killed nine Turkish activists and caused an international outcry.

The panel, which will be led by former New Zealand PM Geoffrey Palmer and outgoing Colombian President Alvaro Uribe, will begin work on 10 August, Mr Ban said.
