Cease-fire talks suspended following rocket strikes

The latest cease-fire in the Gaza Strip has collapsed, after Palestinian rocket fire resumed nearly eight hours before the cease-fire was due to expire.

Israel responded with airstrikes, and ordered its delegates back from Cairo saying it will not negotiate under fire.

Egyptian mediators have been struggling to end the 5-week-old conflict with several temporary cease-fires, but no permanent truce has yet emerged.
