Gaza crisis: Hamas says ceasefire 'imminent'

A ceasefire is set to be announced in the Gaza conflict, Egyptian and Palestinian officials have suggested.

Egypt's President Mohammed Mursi, who has led mediation efforts, said he expected Israel to end air strikes late on Tuesday. A Hamas official also told the BBC a truce was imminent.

Israel has not confirmed this, but has put plans for a land invasion on hold.
