Iran nuclear talks may be extended

Iran and six world powers are working to finalize the terms of a likely extension of negotiations over Teheran's nuclear program beyond a July 20 deadline. An announcement may come as early as Friday, Western diplomats said.

Officials from both sides have said it appears the talks will not yield a breakthrough by the self-imposed target date after two weeks of efforts failed to bridge gaps in positions over a deal intended to end a dispute that has persisted for decades.

Several diplomats close to the negotiations in Vienna suggested they expected talks to resume in September.
