Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza will end a flare-up of violence at 6 a.m. (0400 GMT) on Sunday, Egyptian officials said.

The truce to Saturday's flare-up was secured through Cairo's mediation, an official told Reuters, after nine Palestinian gunmen and an Israeli civilian were killed in the cross-border violence.
