CAIRO (Reuters) - No deal has been reached in Egyptian-mediated talks over Gaza an hour before a 72-hour ceasefire is due to expire and Palestinian factions could reject an extension of the truce under the current terms, a Palestinian source in Cairo said on Friday.

"Negotiations are difficult. Negotiations have not yet reached a final result," said the delegate, speaking on condition of anonymity. "A rejection of extending the truce is likely. That announcement will come from our brothers in Gaza."
