      Once Determined Morsi Now 'Hopes' for Truce


      Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi "hopes" a truce in Gaza will soon be reached, a presidency official said on Tuesday, qualifying earlier remarks by Morsi reported by the official news agency. The president "hopes there will be a settlement soon," the official said.

      The official MENA news agency earlier reported that Morsi, in a speech at his sister's funeral, said Israel's "aggression" against Gaza would end on
      Tuesday.
