Sources: One-week Mideast cease-fire in works

The United States and Egypt are moving closer to an agreement with Israel and the Palestinians on a one-week humanitarian cease-fire starting Sunday, several diplomatic sources told CNN on Friday.

The sources cautioned it is still not a done deal. "We are hoping to have an announcement sometime tonight," one of the sources said.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry is meeting in Egypt right now with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri.
