The UN Human Rights Council named Friday the team of international experts who will investigate the May 31 raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in which 9 pro-Palestinian activist were killed by IDF naval commandos, Reuters reported.

The UN announced in a statement that the committee will be made up of Sir Desmond de Silva from Britain, Karl Hudson-Phillips from Trinidad and Tobago and Mary Shanthi Dairiam from Malaysia.

The UN Human Rights Council voted last month to form the investigative committee to inquire into possible violations of international law committed by Israel during the raid.
