Pretty thin piece, with a headline that doesn't really match the content; there's little discussion in the report about further condemnation, and certainly not from governments.

Story features the Israeli capture of the Rachel Corrie, but it includes several small follow-up items to the attack last Monday on the main flotilla. The headline is not pertinent. The major news is held till last: "Autopsy reports on the dead activists revealed that five had gunshot wounds to the head." Other reports I have read indicate that the coroner determined the shots were fired from close range. This is important because it indicates the passengers may have been killed deliberately by the Israeli commandos rather than as the effects of a melee.
