Ending bloodshed in Gaza rests on a face-saving truce

CAIRO (Reuters) - A possible truce to halt bloodshed in Gaza during the Muslim Eid al-Fitr holiday next week hinges on complex negotiations that have to give Hamas, Israel and regional powers a chance to claim political and military victories. Egypt is trying to broker a temporary humanitarian truce which would start during one of Islam's biggest celebrations following the fasting month of Ramadan, in the hope that it will facilitate more permanent ceasefire talks. #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #cookie #values #rco #aut #rch #typeof-registered #cnt

Restrained Dutch mark air tragedy in sorrow rather than anger

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Dutch nation mourned 189 citizens lost in the Ukrainian air disaster in sorrow rather than anger on Friday, and Prime Minister Mark Rutte held back from pointing the figure of blame. In a country which values restraint and avoids public displays of strong emotion, politicians and media stuck largely to reflecting sombrely on those who died when the Malaysian jet came down on Thursday, including some noted citizens. "The whole of the Netherlands is in deep mourning," said Rutte #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #aut #rch

Israel steps up Gaza ground offensive, civilian casualties grow

GAZA/JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel intensified its land offensive in Gaza with artillery, tanks and gunboats on Friday and warned it could "significantly widen" an operation Palestinian officials said was killing ever greater numbers of civilians. Palestinian health officials said 35 Palestinians, including a baby, four children and a 70-year-old woman, had been killed since Israel sent ground forces on Thursday into the densely-populated enclave of 1.8 million Palestinians. The Israeli military said it killed 17 Palestinian gunmen while another 13 surrendered and were taken for questioning after the infantry and tank assault began in the Islamist Hamas-dominated territory #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #aut #typeof-registered #cnt

Iran, powers seek to agree terms for extending nuclear talks - diplomats

VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran and six world powers are working to finalise the terms of a likely extension in negotiations over Tehran's nuclear programme beyond a July 20 deadline and an announcement may come as early as Friday, Western diplomats said. Officials from both sides on Tuesday said it appeared the talks would not yield a breakthrough by the self-imposed target date after two weeks of efforts failed to bridge gaps in positions over a deal intended to end a decade-long dispute. Several diplomats close to the negotiations in Vienna suggested they expected them to resume in September. #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #values #aut #rch #typeof-registered #cnt
