ISTANBUL - A Turkish prosecutor is seeking the arrest of 174 IDF personnel allegedly involved in the naval commando raid that killed nine Turks on the Mavi Marmara ship carrying aid to the Gaza Strip last year, broadcaster CNN Turk reported on Wednesday.

CNN Turk said on its website that Istanbul state prosecutor Mehmet Akif Ekinci had written to the Justice Ministry calling for the arrest of those who carried out the raid and those who ordered it.

An official contacted by Reuters was not aware of the report and was checking.
