US Secretary of State John Kerry has urged Israel and the Palestinians to take advantage of the Gaza truce to move towards broader negotiations.

 

Kerry told the BBC the situation could concentrate minds on the need to negotiate a "two-state solution".

 

A 72-hour humanitarian truce is holding in Gaza, halting a four-week conflict that has claimed more than 1,900 lives.

 

Israel and the Palestinians have sent delegations to Cairo to discuss the possibility of a longer-term truce.
