Jerusalem: Israel`s army has been using
confiscated videos to justify its deadly raid against a
Gaza-bound aid flotilla, and the Foreign Press Association
wants it to stop.
The organization, which represents hundreds of
journalists in Israel and the Palestinian territories, says
the military seized video and equipment from dozens of
reporters on board the main ship.
The FPA demanded today that the military stop using the
captured material without permission and identify the source
of the video already released. The material appeared Wednesday
on the army`s YouTube site labeled as "captured".

The FPA says the military is now selectively using
footage to bolster its claims that commandos opened fire only
after being attacked.
