Ban sees 'many details' to work out on Gaza truce

CAIRO (Reuters) -- UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said Wednesday there were "many details to work out" before a ceasefire could be reached to end the conflict in the Gaza Strip.

"I am particularly concerned about the spiral of violence at the time of intense efforts to reach a ceasefire in Gaza and Israel," Ban said.

Speaking after a meeting with Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi, whose country is trying to forge a truce, he said: "We all know there are many details to work out. But while that happens civilians continue to die."
