Israel's cabinet to extend cease-fire for 24 hours

A government official says Israel's Cabinet has decided to extend a humanitarian cease-fire for 24 hours.


The official wrote in a text message that the truce would be extended until midnight (2100 GMT) Sunday. He requested anonymity because he was not authorized to brief journalists.

He says Israel also will continue to demolish Hamas military tunnels during the period of lull.
