Israelis, Terrorists in Day 2 of 'Gruelling' Talks


Representatives of Palestinian Arab terror organizations and an Israeli delegation were to resume "gruelling" negotiations in Cairo on Tuesday aimed at ending the Gaza conflict, as Egyptian mediators raced to narrow gaps between the warring sides.

In Monday's indirect talks, Israel's delegation pushed for the disarmament of terror groups in the coastal enclave, a demand the Palestinians rejected outright, officials from the two sides said.
