CAIRO, Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- Israeli and Palestinian negotiators in Cairo agreed Monday evening to extend a 5-day ceasefire in the Gaza Strip for several weeks, the website of the state-run newspaper al-Ahram quoted a diplomatic source as saying.

The source added that the Egyptian Foreign Ministry will later issue a statement in which it will announce the details of the new agreement, which came a few hours before a 5-day ceasefire brokered by Egypt was set to expire at midnight Monday.
