Israel Gives In - Sends Apology to Turkey

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon reportedly sent a letter of apology as demanded by Turkey to end the crisis between the two countries.

Only a few hours earlier Israeli Foreign Ministry officials said that no further apology would be made over the slighting of the Turkish Ambassador.

Turkey threatened that if there was no apology from Israel, she would bring home her ambassador. The row started when Turkey broadcast a second anti-Israel TV series on national television.
