Arab League condemns Israeli “crime” against Gaza aid boat

Arab League Secretary General Amr Moussa slammed a deadly Israeli military raid on Monday against a boat carrying aid for Gaza as a "crime" against a humanitarian mission.

"We condemn this crime... They were trying to help people. They were not on a military mission. Everyone should condemn this," Moussa told AFP.

"We are now conducting calls [with] Arabs to decide on our next step," he added.

The Israeli army said "more than 10 people were killed" when navy seals stormed the boat, ending a high-profile mission by six ships to bring supplies to the blockaded Palestinian Gaza Strip.

It was not clear whether the clashes took place on just one of the six boats making up the aid convoy.
