Israel and Hamas 'agree to Gaza truce'

Israel and the Hamas group which controls the besieged Gaza Strip have agreed to a ceasefire after five days of cross-border conflict, officials said on Monday.

One official who was involved in mediating talks between Israel and Palestinian factions in Gaza said the groups had "reached an understanding on a truce and that the truce has started".

A Palestinian official said Hamas had agreed to enforce the ceasefire on smaller armed groups which were responsible for most of the rockets fired at Israel.
