(AFP) – Israel on Tuesday ordered its negotiating team to return immediately from Gaza truce talks with the Palestinians in Cairo after three rockets hit the country’s south, a government official said.

The official, speaking to AFP, confirmed the delegation had been “ordered to return from Cairo” in response to the rocket fire which came just seven hours before the expiry of a 24-hour truce extension which ends at midnight (2100 GMT).
