It looks as though diplomats won't conclude an Iran nuclear deal by today’s deadline.

Under U.S. law, the seven nations negotiating in Vienna needed to complete the agreement before the end of Thursday in Washington. Now that it has been missed, it activates a 60-day mandatory period of sanctions. The extended time period is important as Iran is requesting prompt easing of economic penalties for nuclear concessions.
