Israel and Hamas agree 12-hour truce

Israel and Hamas have said they have accepted a 12-hour humanitarian window in Gaza, with efforts to negotiate a seven-day ceasefire still ongoing.

US Secretary of State John Kerry said he was still confident of a longer ceasefire, despite media reports that Israel had rejected one proposal.

A total of 935 Palestinians, mostly civilians, and 36 Israelis have died since the conflict began on 8 July.
