Clinton Arrives In Israel For Cease-Fire Talk

Posted: Updated:

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has arrived in Israel on an emergency visit to help end a week of fighting between Israel and Hamas militants.

Clinton touched down late Tuesday and was headed to Jerusalem for talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu amid mixed signs about the prospects of a cease-fire.

Clinton was hastily dispatched to the Mideast earlier in the day while on a visit with President Barack Obama to Asia.

Egypt's President Mohammed Morsi, the main mediator, said earlier Tuesday he expected a deal within hours.

But late Tuesday, Izzat Risheq, a top Hamas official, said it was unclear whether a deal would be reached.
