JERUSALEM (Reuters) -- United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon arrived in Cairo on Monday to weigh in on ceasefire efforts to halt Israel's bombardment of Gaza.

Ki-moon is to visit Jerusalem and the West Bank city of Ramallah this week for talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on the crisis in Gaza, Ban's spokesman Martin Nesirky said on Monday.

Ban's trip to Cairo is to support Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi's efforts to mediate a truce to end cross-border fighting between Israel and militant groups in Gaza, Nesirky said.

Ban meets Mursi on Tuesday but has no plans to visit Gaza, Nesirky said.
