Foreign press criticizes Israel for using captured videos

JERUSALEM — The Foreign Press Association attacked Israel's army on Thursday for using confiscated videos to justify its deadly raid against a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.

The organization, which represents hundreds of journalists in Israel and the Palestinian territories, said the military seized video and equipment from dozens of reporters on board the main ship.



The FPA demanded Thursday that the military stop using the captured material without permission and identify the source of the video already released. The material appeared Wednesday on the army's YouTube site labeled as "captured."

The FPA said the military is now selectively using footage to bolster its claims that commandos opened fire only after being attacked.
