UNHRC likely to form inquiry c'tee into Israel flotilla raid

UN Human Rights Council are likely to vote to create a Goldstone-like inquiry committee into Israel’s deadly raid on a Gaza-bound flotilla on Monday.
The council has been in session in Geneva since Tuesday, following UN condemnation of the Israeli military operation.
A draft resolution, sponsored by Pakistan, Palestine and Sudan, “condemns in the strongest terms possible the outrageous attack by the Israeli forces” and calls for an “independent fact-finding mission to investigate violations of international law resulting from the Israeli attacks on the flotilla ships carrying humanitarian assistance.”
