It appeared Sunday that the United Nations Palmer report on last year's Gaza flotilla, which was supposed to be released on Wednesday, will be delayed until late August in order to give Israel and Turkey time to formulate an agreement.

The two sides have been holding talks in an attempt to find language acceptable to both Jerusalem and Ankara. Israel has said it is willing to express "regret" over the deaths of nine Turkish activists aboard the Mavi Marmara, but Turkey is demanding that Israel "apologize."
