President Barack Obama, who was in Cambodia for a summit of Asian leaders, spoke on the phone with Israeli and Egyptian leaders until 2:30 a.m. Tuesday local time, NBC News reports, to try to find a way to end the deadly Gaza crisis.

Later Tuesday, Obama met separately with Chinese and Japanese leaders before taking his seat at the East Asia Summit, at which point his busy schedule appeared to catch up with him.
