CAIRO (AP) — The Egyptian government has announced a 24-hour extension in cease-fire talks between Israel and the Hamas militant group.

The announcement came late Monday, less than an hour before a temporary truce was set to expire in the Gaza war.

In a statement, Egypt confirmed a deal had not been reached but that talks on a long-term arrangement in the Palestinian territory would continue.

"Palestinians and Israelis agreed on extending ceasefire to 24 hours to continue current negotiations," Egypt's official news agency said, quoting an official statement.
