The family of a U.S. citizen who was killed during a raid by Israeli troops in 2010 on a Gaza-bound flotilla are suing former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, claiming unlawful death and torture.Attorneys representing the Turkish family of Furkan Dogan told AFP that Barak was served papers in the civil case last Tuesday after giving a speech at an event near Los Angeles.Dogan, a U.S. citizen born in New York, was among nine people killed in the raid on six Turkish boats that had been attempting to break Israel's blockade of Gaza.The human rights lawyers that filed the suit against Barak have also been pushing the Hague-based International Criminal Court to investigate the incident.
