Talks in Cairo on ending the Gaza war showed no signs of a breakthrough Monday, with Israel and the Palestinians entrenched in their demands hours before the expiry of a five-day cease-fire.Both sides said gaps remained in reaching a long-term deal that would keep the peace between Israel and militant groups in the Gaza Strip, dominated by Hamas Islamists, and allow reconstruction aid to flow in after five weeks of fighting.Sixty-four Israeli soldiers and three civilians in Israel have been killed.By contrast, Israeli bombardment of Gaza has wrought widespread destruction.The United Nations said 425,000 people in the Gaza Strip have been displaced by the conflict.Israel regards Hamas, which advocates its destruction, as a terrorist group.
