PARIS — France's Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said Wednesday that Israel's raid on the Gaza-bound flotilla was "a very grave mistake" and "extremely damaging to the image of Israel itself."

Kouchner urged Israel and the Palestinians to continue indirect peace talks so that the tensions that led to the raid can be diminished.

The French foreign minister called for an international investigation, and said "there should not be impunity."

He said French activists seized during the raid are being held by Israel in "very acceptable conditions" and will be released quickly.
