BEIT HANOUN, Gaza Strip (AP) — Gaza residents used a 12-hour humanitarian cease-fire on Saturday to stock up on supplies and survey the devastation from nearly three weeks of fighting, as they braced for a resumption of Israel's war on Hamas amid stalled efforts to secure a longer truce.
Australian cyclist Anna Meares will attempt to defend her women's sprint title on Saturday and become the joint most decorated track cyclist in Commonwealth Games history. The 30-year-old equalled Kathy Watt's Australian women's record of seven Commonwealth medals and became the first rider to win a medal at four Games when she retained her title in the women's 500m time trial on Thursday. If Meares can win medal in the sprint, she will become the first track cyclist to win six golds and also equal New Zealand's Gary Anderson as the most decorated track cyclist at the Commonwealth Games with eight.
