Israeli army releases 'flotilla footage'


Israeli officials are standing defiantly saying soldiers had been defending themselves after they were "clubbed, beaten and stabbed" during a raid of a flotilla of Gaza-bound aid ships.

Pro-Palestinian campaigners say the soldiers opened fire unprovoked when they landed on the ships which were trying to break the three-year blockade of Gaza.

The BBC's Wyre Davies describes what has happened 24 hours since the dramatic events began - and 10 people were killed.
