Amnesty puts Israel at fault for flotilla

Amnesty International has said it stands by its initial response to the report into the Gaza flotilla, despite the human rights group focussing almost solely on the UN's findings against Israel.

Following the publication of the Palmer Report, Amnesty International issued a statement which made no mention of the report's criticism of Turkey for failing to do enough to stop the flotilla.

An Amnesty spokesman later said: "Our statement focuses on the Palmer report's findings on Israel… because our analysis focuses on the human rights violations that occurred during the 2010 raid on the flotilla."
