Gaza crisis: 'New exchanges of fire after truce ends' [BBC]

Three Palestinian children have been killed as hostilities between Israel and Gaza resumed following a brief lull in the fighting.

The humanitarian ceasefire was organised for five hours in the morning to allow besieged residents in Gaza to stock up on essential supplies.

Both Israel and Hamas, which controls Gaza, denied earlier reports a longer-term truce had been agreed but talks are continuing in Egypt.
