ANKARA: All but two of the nine Turks killed in an Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound aid ship were shot more than once, and five died from bullet wounds to the head, according to forensic reports.

The reports were made available to AFP Tuesday by lawyers for the victims families, who have petitioned Turkish prosecutors to investigate the May 31 bloodshed on the Turkish Mavi Marmara ferry. The forensic examinations were carried out in Turkey by the government-run Forensic Institute.

The findings make it clear the Israeli forces shot to kill the activists and not to overpower them, one of the lawyers, Yasin Divrak, told AFP. The nine volunteers were shot a total of 31 times, according to the documents. The youngest victim, 19-year-old Furkan Dogan, a dual Turkish-US national, was shot five times, including twice in the head, his autopsy report said.
