Egyptian prime minister arrives in Gaza - official


(Reuters) - Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil arrived in the Gaza Strip on Friday to show solidarity with the Palestinian people following a two-day Israeli military offensive in the enclave, an Egyptian official said.
Israel has said it will suspend all military action during Kandil's three-hour visit so long as the Islamist group Hamas also halts fire.
