Israel-Gaza crisis: Celebrations as ceasefire begins

A ceasefire between Israel and the Palestinian Hamas movement which governs Gaza has come into effect.

Under the deal, Israel has agreed to end all hostilities and targeted killings, while Hamas will stop attacks against Israel and along the border.

At least 157 people have died since the flare-up of violence began last week.

The BBC's Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen reports from Gaza.
