The acting US special envoy for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations Frank Lowenstein arrived on Thursday in Cairo where he was slated to meet with Egypt's foreign minister and other officials regarding an extension to the current temporary cease-fire.

According to Palestinian news agency Ma'an, Lowenstein said Egyptian negotiators were attempting to prolong the cease-fire scheduled to last until Friday morning in order to provide enough time to reach a long-term truce.
