Israel's Gaza raid probe dismissed

Turkish group dismisses report saying the use of live fire in the deadly raid was justified.

    A group known as the "Free Gaza Flotilla" has dismissed the Israeli military's probe into the May 31 deadly raid on the aid convoy which killed nine people.

    The 100-page document criticises the Israeli navy for "serious errors" in intelligence and planning but found no wrongdoing on the part of those carrying out the raid and said "the use of live fire was justified".
