Head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Organisation Ali Akbar Salehi (2nd-R) walks on the banks of Lake Geneva before attending negotiations on the Iranian nuclear programme in Lausanne, Switzerland, on March 26, 2015Iran's president appealed to global leaders including Barack Obama as negotiators raced against the clock to agree the outlines of a deal that puts an Iranian nuclear bomb out of reach. Hassan Rouhani wrote to the American president, US officials confirmed, as well as to the leaders of the five other powers heading efforts to resolve the 12-year standoff over Iran's nuclear programme. "We are acting in the national and international interest and we should not lose this exceptional opportunity," Rouhani told British Prime Minister David Cameron by phone, the presidency said. "Hope was expressed for success at the new round of talks in Lausanne," the Kremlin said after Rouhani spoke to President Vladimir Putin, while noting with "satisfaction" the progress made.

Amanda Knox, shown in Seattle after her release from prison in Italy on October 4, 2011, will discover if she is to be definitively convicted of murder as Italy's top court resumes a hearing on the 2007 slaying of British student Meredith KercherAmanda Knox will discover Friday if she is to be definitively convicted of murder as Italy's top court resumes a hearing on the 2007 slaying of British student Meredith Kercher. After hearing final arguments from the defence, judges will retire to consider whether to uphold the convictions of Knox and her Italian ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito. If they do, Sollecito could be taken straight back to jail while the absent Knox is likely to become the subject of a wrangle over whether she should be extradited back to Italy to join him behind bars. Alternatively, the judges could send the case back to the appeal stage, opening the door to possible acquittals for Knox and/or Sollecito.
