Rice says US working towards "durable" ceasefire

world Updated: Jan 02, 2009 20:30 IST

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Friday the United States was working toward a ceasefire in Gaza that was "durable and sustainable."

She said she would not travel to the region at this point to try to broker an end to the violence. Israel began air strikes on the Gaza Strip last Saturday.
