ISTANBUL — Turkey's foreign minister on Monday called on Israel to accept an international probe into the raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that killed nine pro-Palestinian activists.

Ahmet Davutoglu said Israel should declare it agrees to the probe proposed by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. He said: "Otherwise, it means that they have something to hide."

Israel's ambassador to the US has said Israel rejects the idea.
