Israel rejects international investigation of raid

Israel has rejected calls from the United Nations and others for an international investigation of its deadly raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla. Israel's military already is investigating the raid.

 

An official in the Prime Minister's Office said there is "no case in recent history" where a democratic country's army involved in the deaths of civilians in an overseas operation has been subjected to an international investigation. The official spoke on condition of anonymity pending a formal announcement by the government. He made the remarks on Thursday. (AP)
