UNITED NATIONS— Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Israel on Tuesday to agree to international participation in an investigation into its deadly raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla.


UN associate spokesman Farhan Haq said Ban wants to underscore that "credible international involvement is crucial to a prompt, credible, impartial and transparent investigation."




"The secretary-general understands that Israel is still considering how and if to bring an international element into the investigative process," Haq said.
