The long-term ceasefire agreed by Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday appears to be holding.

The truce has brought an end to seven weeks of fighting that killed more than 2,200 people, the majority of them Palestinians.

The BBC's Quentin Sommerville in Gaza City explained how day-to-day life is returning to some kind of normality.
