UN Flotilla Report Delayed Again


The United Nations announced, on Monday, that it was delaying, once again, publication of the Palmer Committee report on Israel's 2010 interception of the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara, which tried to break the naval blockade of Gaza. Nine Turkish citizens died after those on board attacked Israeli commandos boarded the vessel.

It was not clear who requested the delay. A previous delay was linked to elections in Turkey.
