Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu demanded Israel release all those detained because they were aboard the Gaza-bound flotilla ships, will allow the ships to go on to Gaza and pay damages to any injured in the action at sea.

Davutoglu spoke at a special session of the UN Security Council held overnight Monday at the request of Turkey and Lebanon. He also called the actions of the Israeli Navy “piracy” and “state-sponsored murder.” He urged the Security Council to appoint an independent commission of inquiry into the incident.
