Kerry says US working hard for ceasefire

The United States is doing “everything in our power” to end the bloodshed in the Gaza Strip, Secretary of State John Kerry says, as he keeps up contacts with regional leaders.

“Our concern is to have a legitimate ceasefire and see if we can find a way to stop the conflict and killing so we can get to the real issues that are underlying it,” Kerry tells reporters as he meets his counterpart from Luxembourg.

“And we’re doing everything in our power,” says Kerry, adding that he has been speaking to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Arab officials.
