    Turkey has expelled the Israeli ambassador and suspended military ties with the country.

    The government in Ankara is angry at Israel's refusal to apologise for last year's attack on boats bound for Gaza.

    Nine Turks were killed when the Israeli army intercepted an aid ship.

    The United Nations is to release its report into the incident.

    An early copy seen by Al Jazeera criticises Israel for using excessive and unreasonable force - but also says they faced violent resistance.

    Al Jazeera's Cal Perry has more from Jerusalem.
