Iran talks stretch into another... 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'.

Afghan suicide attack kills 17,... KABUL (Reuters) - A suicide attack near the governor's house in the eastern Afghan province of Khost killed 17 people on Thursday and wounded dozens, Tolo TV said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. The Afghan Taliban, ousted from power in 2001 by U.S.-led forces, have been fighting to bring down the U.S.-backed government in Kabul, and stepped up attacks after most foreign forces pulled out at the end of last year.

Houthi forces in Aden pull back... Houthi forces pulled back from positions in central Aden after air strikes by the Saudi-led coalition at dawn on Thursday, residents of the southern Yemeni port city said. They said a unit of Houthi and allied fighters, who had advanced in tanks and armored vehicles through Aden's Khor Maksar district 24 hours earlier, pulled back, although they remained in parts of the neighborhood. The Houthis' recent gains in Aden, the last major foothold of supporters of Saudi-backed President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, have happened despite a week of air strikes by Saudi Arabia and a coalition of mainly Sunni Arab allies. In the Arabian Sea port of Mukalla, 500 km (300 miles) east of Aden, suspected al Qaeda fighters stormed the central prison and freed 150 prisoners, some of them al Qaeda detainees, sources in the local police and administration said.

Death toll in Egypt Sinai attack... (Reuters) - The death toll from attacks by gunmen with rocket-propelled grenades on military checkpoints in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula on Thursday climbed to 15 soldiers and two civilians, security and medical sources said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but a Sinai militant group that supports Islamic State has carried out similar operations.
