Turkey: Israel's actions 'piracy'


The Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, has called Israel's storming of aid ships heading for Gaza, "tantamount to banditry and piracy" and demanded that Israel issue an immediate apology.

Mr Davutoglu told the BBC that the six ships being held, should be released at once and the pro-Palestinian campaigners repatriated and compensated.

Israel claims the protestors on board the ship were not peaceful and troops were acting in self defence.
