Gaza conflict: New three-day ceasefire begins.
A three-day truce has come into effect between Israel and the Palestinians in Gaza, after a day of intense diplomacy.
It is hoped the latest truce, which came into effect at 21:00 GMT, will help negotiators agree a longer peace.
Egypt brokered a similar truce last week, but fighting resumed after the three-day window ended.
About 2,000 people have died in the conflict, which began on 8th July, when Israel launched an operation to deter militant attacks from Gaza.
