ISTANBUL — Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin condemned Israel's raid on the Gaza-bound flotilla during a news conference with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday.

"We condemn this act," Putin said, and expressed concern that it was conducted in international waters.

Turkey, which is hosting a 22-nation security summit, is seeking international condemnation for the May 31 raid.
