Iran, world powers seek elusive nuclear deal one day before deadline

Palais Coburg in Vienna, the venue of nuclear talks aimed at settling a dispute over Iran's nuclear programme, days before a deadline is pictured on November 21, 2014Iran and world powers face an uphill struggle to break the deadlock in their high-stakes nuclear negotiations and secure a historic deal on the eve of a deadline. Kerry, who on Friday postponed a trip to Paris to remain in Vienna for the talks, met Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Saturday afternoon, their fourth meeting in three days. German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, also in the Austrian capital, called this final weekend of talks, after months of negotiations, a "moment of truth". At stake is a historic deal in which Iran would curb its disputed nuclear activities in exchange for broad relief from years of heavy international economic sanctions.

Israel demolitions

Immigration row fuels early 2016 US presidential race

The crowd cheers as US President Barack Obama delivers remarks on the new steps he will be taking within his executive authority on immigration at Del Sol High School in Las Vegas, Nevada, November 21, 2014When President Barack Obama unveiled his immigration plan and Republican rivals howled their disapproval, the drama signaled not just a clash of political positions: it kicked off the 2016 presidential campaign. Several likely Republican White House contenders -- and a very prominent Democrat, Hillary Clinton -- provided some of the most visible early reactions to the president's controversial executive order. Their statements helped draw the battle lines of Washington's immigration warfare that is sure to extend all the way to the next national election, when Republicans will be seeking to end their eight-year White House drought. "I support the president's decision to begin fixing our broken immigration system and focus finite resources on deporting felons rather than families," Clinton, the 2016 Democratic frontrunner, said in a statement that earned attention in part for the swiftness of its release after Obama's announcement.
