U.S. Tries To Restore Ties Between Turkey And Israel

Play associated audio
Turkish and Israeli delegations are discussing compensation for families of the nine activists killed aboard the Turkish aid ship Mavi Marmara when Israeli commandos boarded the ship off the Gaza coast in 2010. The talks are part of an effort by Washington, D.C., to restore normal ties between two of its allies, but the process faces a number of pitfalls. Several families of the aid ship victims say they don't want compensation until Israeli restrictions on Gaza are lifted, something Israel has not offered and is unlikely to do while Hamas remains in charge of Gaza.
