Egypt has proposed a ceasefire to end a week of cross-border fire between the Gaza Strip and Israel.

The initiative urges a ceasefire starting early today followed by a series of meetings in Cairo with high-level delegations from both sides.

However an official from Hamas, which controls Gaza, said a full deal would have to come first, before a ceasefire.

Israeli officials said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's security cabinet would discuss the proposal early today.
