Newshour: Gaza special

A special, in-depth look at the week's big story - the crisis triggered by Israel's commando raid on ships that were trying to break the blockade of Gaza.

Nine activists were killed in the course of the raid in the early hours of the morning of Monday 31 May, and several dozen more were injured.

How did the shooting start? Why were so many killed? Will there ever be an undisputed account of what happened? And why did it set off a diplomatic crisis involving the US, Turkey, Israel, Europe and the Muslim world?
