Ceasefire set to be announced in Gaza
A ceasefire is set to be announced in the Gaza conflict according to Egyptian and Palestinian officials.
BBC Online reported that 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 the plans for a ceasefire, but has put plans for a land invasion on hold.
It has also confirmed that an Israeli soldier has been killed by a rocket fired from Gaza - the first reported Israeli military fatality in the conflict that began last week.
Despite talks of a ceasefire, Israel has told residents in villages around Gaza City to move to central areas for their own safety.
