Palestinians salvage their belongings from the rubble in Beit Lahiya, northern Gaza Strip, Aug. 4, 2014.

Israel and Hamas each accused the other of breaking a seven-hour long cease-fire early Monday. The truce was designed to give Palestinian refugees a chance to go home or buy supplies.

Palestinians said Israel had bombed a refugee camp in Gaza City. An 8-year-old girl was reported killed and more than 20 other people wounded.

Israel said at least four rockets had been fired at its territory from Gaza.

Separately, Palestinian representatives held their first official meeting in Cairo with Egyptian mediators. Egypt has urged Israel and Palestinian factions to begin a 72-hour ceasefire starting 0500 UTC.

Ebola Outbreak in West Africa

The death toll from the Ebola outbreak has reached nearly 900 with over 1600 cases confirmed.

Dr. Brantly received a dose of experimental serum before leaving Liberia. He also received blood from a 14-year-old boy who had survived Ebola under his care.

Rescue crews in southern China are battling heavy rain as they work to reach survivors from the earthquake on Sunday. The earthquake killed at least 398 people and injured 1,800 others in the Yunnan province.
