Scenes of fatherhood

Image 6 of 30


Palestinian newborn Rajab Erdogan, is held by his father wrapped in a Turkish flag for members of the media, at their home in the southern Gaza Strip refugee camp of Khan Younis on June 6. The baby was born on Saturday and was named by his father in honor of Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The push for an international inquiry puts Israel under further pressure to explain how its attempt to stop the aid ship flotilla from breaching a tight blockade of Hamas-ruled Gaza turned deadly, with nine activists killed, including eight Turks and a US citizen of Turkish origin.
