US Secretary of State John Kerry has played down claims Israel's security cabinet has rejected a truce in Gaza, saying a formal proposal had not been put to the body.

US Secretary of State John Kerry has said he is confident there is a framework for a truce in Gaza that will "ultimately succeed" despite Israel rejecting the latest ceasefire proposal.
He was joined at a news conference in Cairo by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, where both men called for a seven-day humanitarian truce in Gaza across the Eid-ul-Fitr religious holiday, beginning with an extendable 12-hour "pause" in fighting.
Mr Kerry accepted there are still disagreements on the terminology for a Gaza truce but said peacemakers were "working towards" brokering an agreement between Israel and Hamas.
He said he was confident Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was "committed" to working towards a peaceful solution.
A strong smell of aircraft fuel and the fact that debris was scattered over a small area suggests the Air Algerie plane crash was linked to weather or a technical problem, French Transport Minister Frederic Cuvillier has said.
