Israel's Turkish Gaza aid ship raid legal, says PM Netanyahu

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has told an inquiry that Israel "acted under international law" when it intercepted a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in May.

Mr Netanya was appearing before Israel's commission looking into the deaths of nine Turkish activists during the raid.

Critics have attacked the investigation's remit as too narrow, with the UN and Turkey due to hold their own inquiries into the raid.
