JPNN|Harinder Mishra | Jerusalem | Gaza | Jul 17, 2014|Israel today dismissed as "incorrect" a report that it had reached a deal for a truce with Hamas to end the 10-day conflict that has killed 230 Palestinians in Gaza.Israel's Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told a group of diplomats that "the reports of a ceasefire, are far from representing reality. I spoke with the Prime Minister, and as of now they are incorrect".Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri said the group "denies" any deal reached regarding an additional calm. Moshir Al-Masri, a spokesperson for the Islamic Jihad, the second most prominent militant group in Gaza, also denied the deal. "Reports of calm between resistance forces in Gaza and the occupation under Egyptian brokerage are Israeli propaganda. We have yet to receive any confirmation (of our demands) from the Egyptians," Al-Masri said. According to a BBC report, apparently also confirmed to some other news agencies by an Israeli official, the ceasefire would come into effect at 6 AM (local time) tomorrow. "There is an agreement for a ceasefire beginning tomorrow. I believe it is 6 in the morning (0300 GMT)," an Israeli official had reportedly said on condition of anonymity. Israel and Hamas had agreed to a humanitarian ceasefire for five hours today at a UN request but Gaza based militants fired three rockets into Israel which did not cause any casualty.Agency

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
