The US Tuesday slammed a UN probe investigating the May 31 IDF raid on an aid flotilla bound for Gaza, calling on the the Human Rights Council to prevent the report from being used to disrupt peace talks, according to an AFP report.

"We are concerned by the report's unbalanced language, tone and conclusions," US ambassador Eileen Donahoe told the Human Rights Council.

"We urge that this report not be used for actions that could disrupt the direct Israeli-Palestinian talks now underway or actions that could make it harder," she added.
