Israel and the Hamas leadership in Gaza have begun a ceasefire following a deal agreed on Wednesday.
 
The truce came into effect in the evening after the news was announced at a joint press conference in Cairo between US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Egyptian foreign minister
Mohammed Kamel Amr.
 
Egypt has brokered the deal and is expected to monitor it.
 
After a week of cross-border bombardment both sides will stop firing at each other, and border crossings from Gaza into Israel should re-open.
 
But the Israeli blockade of Gaza is set to continue.
