Kerry heads to Middle East, Gaza death toll past 500

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State John Kerry is heading back to the Middle East to push for a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.

Kerry leaves Monday for Egypt, where he'll join diplomatic efforts to resume a truce that had been agreed to in November 2012.

Meanwhile, the U.N. Security Council emerged from an emergency session late Sunday with a proposed resolution much weaker than a proposal from Jordan that called for Israel to pull out of Gaza.

The Palestinian death toll is now past 500.
