Diplomatic efforts to broker a truce in Gaza have intensified, with US Secretary of State John Kerry meeting the UN chief Ban Ki-moon in Cairo.

He said the US was sending 47 million dollars in aid to Gaza "to try to alleviate the immediate humanitarian crisis."

The two-week conflict has left nearly 600 Palestinians and 29 Israelis dead.
