US's Kerry says no deal yet on 7-day Gaza truce


JERUSALEM (AP) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says he has not yet reached a deal between Israel and Hamas to call a 7-day humanitarian truce in the Gaza war but is continuing work.

Kerry's comments at a Friday evening press conference in Cairo came after days of shuttling between the Egyptian capital, Jerusalem and the West Bank trying to work out a week-long truce. Israeli media say Israel's Security Cabinet rejected the plan in its current form.

Kerry said a truce would provide seven days to work out further talks to address each side's demands. He said some "terminology" on a truce's framework still needed work.

"We don't yet have that final framework, but none of us are stopping," he said.
