Gaza Ceasefire Coming to an End

Still meeting in Cairo for a longer truce


Israel and the Palestinians are facing the end of the latest Gaza cease-fire as they meet in Cairo to try to agree on a lasting truce.

The latest cease-fire between the warring sides ends at midnight Monday (2100 GMT, 5 p.m. EDT). There is no indication that negotiators are close to reaching a deal to stop more than a month of fighting between Hamas, which runs the coastal enclave along the Mediterranean and the Jewish state.
