Turkish prosecutors have completed their investigation into 2010's raid on the Mavi Marmara passenger ship, in which Israeli commandos killed nine Turkish pro-Palestinian activists attempting to break the blockade of the Gaza Strip, Today's Zaman quoted Turkish Justice Minister Sadullah Ergin as saying on Tuesday.

Turkish news reports claimed last year that intelligence agencies had compiled a list identifying 174 soldiers who could be prosecuted for their involvement in the operation.
