Turkey’s prime minister is quoted as saying Monday that his country has closed its airspace to Israeli flights following a deadly raid on a Gaza-bound aid ship.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters in Toronto that Turkey imposed the ban after the May 31 raid on a Turkish ship that was part of a six-vessel international aid flotilla, according to the state-run Anatolia news agency.

The prime minister, who is in Canada to attend a summit of the Group of 20 major industrial and developing nations, did not elaborate.
