Obama: New truce 'very hard' if no confidence in Hamas

Aug. 1, 2014 11:00 P.M. (Updated: Aug. 1, 2014 11:00 P.M.)
WASHINGTON (AFP) -- US President Barack Obama urged Hamas to show they were serious about wanting a ceasefire Friday and urged the Islamist militants to release an Israeli soldier reportedly captured earlier in the day.

"I think it's going to be very hard to put a ceasefire back together again if Israelis and the international community can't feel confident that Hamas can follow through on a ceasefire commitment," he said.
