Egypt and Turkey are discussing measures to help end clashes between Israel and Gaza's Hamas rulers that have killed hundreds of people. Egypt and Turkey both have tried to mediate between Israel and the Palestinians, and are urging the sides to show restraint. Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit was meeting Monday with his Turkish counterpart Ali Babacan. Gheit on Sunday called on Hamas to renew its truce with Israel, while Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has described Israel's air assaults on Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip as a "crime against humanity."
