CAIRO (AP) — The head of the Palestinian delegation negotiating a truce with Israel says Hamas has agreed to extend a cease-fire for another five days.

Azzam al-Ahmad said late Wednesday the cease-fire was meant to ensure a "positive atmosphere," while noting there had been "lots of progress" in the talks.

A Hamas official earlier said the truce had been extended for 72 hours.

Israeli officials declined to comment.
