August 12, 2014 10:10

A Palestinian official with knowledge of the cease-fire talks in Cairo told Reuters on Tuesday that another day was needed in Egyptian-mediated cease-fire talks before it would be evident whether a truce between Israel and Hamas would be achievable. 

"So far we can't say a breakthrough has been achieved ... Twenty-four hours and we shall see whether we have an agreement," said the official speaking on condition of anonymity.
