U.S. welcomes Israel inquiry on flotilla events

The United States on Sunday welcomed Israel's decision to begin an internal investigation into the events surrounding last month's raid on a convoy of Gaza-bound aid ships.

A statement by White House spokesman Robert Gibbs called the proposal for the probe "an important step forward" and said Israel was capable of conducting a fair investigation into the deadly flotilla raid.

"But we will not prejudge the process or its outcome, and will await the conduct and findings of the investigation before drawing further conclusions," the statement said.
