Two Palestinians were killed in a new Israeli air strike on central Gaza pushing the death toll in six days of violence to more than 100,.

UN chief Ban Ki-moon arrived in Cairo yesterday to bolster Egypt-mediated efforts for a ceasefire in Gaza which officials said could end the conflict before it worsens with a possible Israeli ground invasion.

Ban will inject heavyweight impetus into the peace effort, meeting Foreign Minister Mohammed Kamel Amr and Arab League chief Nabil al-Arabi before flying to see Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian chief Mahmud Abbas.

Egyptian mediators have been hosting marathon indirect talks between a Hamas team led by Khaled Meshaal and an Israeli envoy, which an Egyptian official said had produced "encouraging signs" on ending the crisis, now in its sixth day.
