Rocket attacks threaten fragile Middle East ceasefire

Rocket attacks have threatened a fragile ceasefire in the Middle East, just hours after it came into effect.

Israel has withdrawn its troops from the Gaza Strip, ending a five month offensive, after Palestinian militants agreed to the truce.

However the military wing of Hamas has fired three rockets into Israel this morning, without causing any loss of life or damage.

It's hoped if the deal does hold, it will pave the way for peace talks in the region.
