Indirect talks between Israeli and Palestinian representatives are taking place in the Egyptian capital Cairo.

They come after a four-week conflict in Gaza that has claimed more than 1,900 lives.

Egyptian mediators are shuttling between the two delegations, relaying each side's demands.

A 72-hour truce is now in its second day in Gaza, the longest lull in fighting since the conflict began on 8th July.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has urged both sides to use the ceasefire to move towards broader negotiations.
