UN experts say Israel suppressing flotilla footage

GENEVA — An independent panel investigating Israel's boarding of a Gaza-bound aid flotilla says Jerusalem is suppressing footage of the incident it seized from the passengers.
The UN-appointed experts say Israeli soldiers confiscated still photos and video material from more than two dozen journalists and others aboard the flotilla during the raid May 31 in which nine people were killed.
Karl T. Hudson-Phillips, a former judge at the International Criminal Court, told reporters in Geneva on Tuesday that Israel appeared to be trying to "control information and to have monopoly on versions as to what existed."
Israel has dismissed the report, claiming the UN Human Rights Council that commissioned it is biased.
