Topic: Iran talks stretch into another day; deal seen close but elusive


By John Irish, Parisa Hafezi and Louis Charbonneau LAUSANNE, Switzerland (Reuters) - Major powers and Iran negotiated into the early hours of Thursday on Tehran's nuclear program two days past their deadline, with diplomats saying prospects for a preliminary agreement were finely balanced between success and collapse. The negotiations, aimed at blocking Iran's capacity to build a nuclear bomb in exchange for lifting sanctions, have become bogged down over crucial details of the accord, even as the broad outlines of an agreement have been reached. There were differing accounts of the extent of progress, with Iran's Foreign Minister Mohamad Javad Zarif calling it 'significant' but a Western official describing it as 'limited'.
