Deputy Speaker of the Israeli parliament Danny Danon has defended Israel's action against a convoy of ships carrying aid to the Gaza strip.

At least nine people have been killed after Israeli commandos stormed the vessels, clashing with some of the 500 people on board.

Israel says its soldiers were shot at and attacked with weapons. The activists say Israeli troops came on board shooting.
