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.
