The Turkish daily "Hurriyet" reported Monday that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu three times accepted and then backed down from a Turkish request to publicly apology for Israeli complicity in last year's Mavi Marmara incident.

According to the report, which cites leaked correspondence between Ankara and Tel Aviv, Netanyahu repeatedly agreed to announce his regret for the botched raid, in which nine Turkish citizens died, for fear his coalition government would collapse as a result.
