Obama Hints Talks with Iran Will be Extended

U.S. President Barack Obama signaled Wednesday that talks with Iran on its nuclear program may need to extend beyond a weekend deadline, saying negotiations have shown a "credible way forward," according to AFP.

Obama said he was consulting with Congress - where there is strong criticism of his quest for a diplomatic deal with Iran - as negotiators meet in Vienna ahead of Sunday's expiration of a temporary deal.
