Was Israel right to board the Gaza flotilla?
Nine activists died after Israeli commandos boarded an aid flotilla that was en route to Gaza on Monday. What is your reaction?
The six-ship convoy, carrying 10,000 tonnes of aid, had been due to arrive in Gaza on Monday. Israel had repeatedly said it would stop the boats, calling them a "provocation intended to delegitimise Israel".
Following the activists' deaths, thousands of protesters have demonstrated against Israel in Turkey, while several countries have summoned Israeli ambassadors to seek an explanation.
UN chief Ban Ki-moon said he was "shocked by reports of killings and injuries". The UN Security Council issued a statement calling for a "prompt, impartial, credible and transparent" inquiry.
Another aid ship, the MV Rachel Corrie, is currently headed for Gaza in defiance of the Israeli blockade.
What is your reaction to this incident? How should the international community respond? What impact will this have on Israeli/Palestinian relations?
