LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — Wrapping up six days of marathon nuclear talks with mixed results, Iran and six world powers prepared Tuesday to issue a general statement agreeing to continue talks in a new phase aimed at reaching a final agreement by the end of June to control Iran's nuclear ambitions, officials told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Nigeria's main opposition on Tuesday claimed victory in the country's tense general election as former military ruler Muhammadu Buhari pulled ahead of President Goodluck Jonathan in the vote count. With 32 out of 37 results in, Buhari's All Progressives Congress (APC) had won 19 states with Jonathan's Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on 12 plus the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja. "This is the first time the opposition has voted a government out of power in Nigeria's history," he added. They included the northeastern states hit hardest by the six-year Boko Haram insurgency.
