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.
