Second ceasefire agreed in Middle East

A ceasefire has been agreed in the Middle East for the second time since last night.

The military wing of Hamas had broken an earlier truce by firing three rockets into Israel.

However they have now agreed to stop all rocket fire, in an agreement that is aiming to end five months of bloodshed.

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