Pressure mounts on Israel to explain deaths of aid workers

From Morning Report, 7:44 am on 4 April 2024

Pressure is mounting on Israel to explain why seven humanitarian aid workers in clearly marked vehicles were killed in an air strike this week.

Seven people died after the World Central Kitchen convoy was hit several times. The CEO of WCK, chef Jose Andres, has told Reuters in an interview that the Israeli attack targeted them "systematically, car by car."

The Israeli Defence Force claims the strike was deliberate, but they thought the aid convoy was something else.

Author and columnist for the Israeli publication Haaretz Gideon Levy spoke to Corin Dann.
