US President Joe Biden is pushing for the ceasefire to be extended. 

He is stepping up pressure on Israel and Hamas to continue the release of hostages and delay a return to full scale fighting. 

US Correspondent Richard Arnold told Mike Hosking that Biden’s envoy is pushing for the scope of the hostage releases to be broadened. 

He said that so far, the hostages released have been women and children, but they want the releases to include men and military personnel as well. 

Arnold said that the US is also seeking a longer military pause, the release of American hostages held by Hamas.
