Egypt: 'Israel-Gaza ceasefire efforts will continue'

Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry has said that efforts will continue to try and broker a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza - in an attempt to end the current conflict.

Both sides have denied earlier reports of a truce deal. Some 227 Palestinians have died in Israeli air strikes since Israel's offensive began on 8 July. One Israeli has been killed by mortar fire from Gaza.
