UN chief says Gaza fighting must stop

The U.N. secretary-general has called for an immediate halt to the fighting in Gaza and said intense negotiations were needed to come up with the necessary arrangements.
Ban Ki-moon began Wednesday in Egypt a weeklong trip to the region to end the crisis in the Gaza Strip where an Israeli campaign to end Hamas rocket fire has killed over 900 Palestinians.
Ban called for an "immediate" end to the violence and said negotiations needed to be "intensified."
Ban heads off to Jordan and then Israel next to help move along negotiations to end the 19-day-old crisis.
