Israel's Livni visits Egypt to discuss Gaza truce with Mubarak

Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni travelled to Cairo on Thursday to discuss the renewing an Egyptian-brokered truce that ended last week.

Livni's talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak come a day after Israeli air missile strike killed a Hamas fighter in Gaza and nearly 80 rockets and mortars fired through southern Israel.

Israeli cabinet minister Meir Sheetrit said on Israel Radio that Livni will "tell Mubarak and the Egyptians that Israel will not tolerate the situation of Hamas firing at towns in the south."

Under a six-month ceasefire that ended in violence last week, Hamas agreed to halt rocket fire in return for Israel easing a blockade that was highly tightened in recent mounths following Gazan response to Israeli raid which killed four Palestinians.
