US urges 'durable' Gaza solution
US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has said that the goal of talks between Hamas and Israel about the conflict in Gaza "must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability".
Her comments came as she arrived in Jerusalem to meet Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
She will travel to Ramallah in the West Bank and the Egyptian capital Cairo where negotiations are taking place on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Gaza has come under renewed bombardment from Israel, as agreement on a ceasefire to end a week of violence remains elusive.
