A three-day ceasefire between Israel and the Islamist group Hamas appears to be holding.

Indirect talks between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators aimed at finding a long-term solution to the conflict in Gaza have begun in Cairo, according to Egyptian state media.

The BBC's Yolande Knell in Gaza says that both sides are unofficially suggesting that there may be some room for compromise, as families begin to return home.
