Cairo: Fifty Egyptian political
activists have demanded the arrest of Israeli Prime Minister
Binyamin Netanyahu and the commanders of the Israeli army on
charges of killing and wounding dozens of people when they
stormed a flotilla, carrying aid to Gaza Strip.
Egyptian Prosecutor General, Counselor Abd-al-Maged,
has decided to open an investigation into the charges filed by
50 political activists demanding the arrest of Netanyahu and
the Israeli commanders.
The prosecutor general decided to summon the political
activists who filed the complaint to hear their statements on
June 19.

Coordinator of the European Campaign to break the
blockade on Gaza, Mazin Kahil, said that the cancellation of
the Netanyahu visit was made after Israeli officials were
certain that the French judiciary has accepted a lawsuit
against those who committed the crime of assaulting the
Freedom Convoy in the High Seas, which falls within the
jurisdiction of the French judiciary.

The Israeli assault on May 31 on a aid flotilla killed
nine pro-Palestinian activists and injured many others has
evoked international condemnation and pressure has been
mounting on Israel to hold a fair probe.
