With a deadline for an Iranian nuclear deal fast approaching, US Secretary of State John Kerry embarked on a frenzy of high-stakes diplomacy on Wednesday in a last-minute push to secure an agreement - or at least prevent the process from collapsing.

As senior negotiators huddled for a second day in Vienna, Kerry held separate meetings in London. He arrived in Paris early on Thursday to meet with the US negotiating team in Vienna. Kerry was still weighing when he might join the larger effort in the Austrian capital, where negotiators are racing against the clock to forge a pact over the next five days.

Despite his efforts, though, signs increasingly pointed to Monday's deadline passing without a deal and the negotiations being extended a second time.
