Ankara does not trust the probe Israel is planning into the IDF raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla, Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu was quoted as saying Monday.

"We have no trust at all that Israel, a country that has carried out such an attack on a civilian convoy in international waters, will conduct an impartial investigation," AFP quoted Davutoglu as saying.

He called for an investigation to be held "under the direct control of the United Nations... with the participation of Turkey and Israel."

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on June 5 that the IDF raid of the Mavi Marmara should be investigated by a New Zealand-led committee, with Israeli and Turkish deputies.
