Netanyahu defends killings of civilian Gaza aid activists

Accusing international critics of "hypocrisy", Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended Monday's seizure of a Turkish aid ship bound for Gaza, in which nine activists aboard were killed.

Israel's bloody raid on six aid ships that carried 700 activists who were trying to break the Israel's navel blockade of Gaza has dramatically escalated tensions with Turkey. The attack killed nine people, including at least four Turks on a Turkish aid ship. Turkey withdrew its ambassador, scrapped war games with Israel and demanded a U.N. Security Council meeting on the attack as a result.
