Israel to take part in U.N. probe of flotilla raid
Question of the Day
JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s prime minister has informed U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon that Israel will take part in a U.N. investigation of the deadly Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla, a government spokesman said Monday.
The panel will be set up by Mr. Ban, who has been pressing Israel to cooperate with the investigation.
“Today, Israel informed the secretary general of the United Nations that we will participate in a panel set up by the secretary general to look into the flotilla incident,” spokesman Mark Regev told the Associated Press. “Ultimately we are sure that the facts are on our side. We have no problem whatsoever with a credible, objective panel.”
