UN rights council to hold urgent debate on Gaza boat raid
The UN Human Rights Council will hold an urgent debate on Tuesday on Israel's military interception of an aid flotilla heading for the Gaza Strip, a spokeswoman said.
"The Council will be holding an urgent debate on the Gaza flotilla incident this afternoon," the spokeswoman Claire Kaplun said in an e-mail statement.
The request was tabled by Arab League and Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) states, Kaplun told AFP.
A draft resolution on the incident was being drawn up by several unspecified nations in the 47 member state council, she added.
