EXCERPT

When Iran and world powers reached a framework in April for a final comprehensive nuclear agreement, U.S.President Barack Obama hailed the accord as one that would "cut off every pathway that Iran could take to develop a nuclear weapon."

"Iran will face strict limitations on its program, and Iran has also agreed to the most robust and intrusive inspections and transparency regime ever negotiated for any nuclear program in history,” Obama said at the time.

With just days remaining until the deadline for a final agreement, major differences exist between the two sides that have caused some officials to voice concern that the deadline will not be met.

EXCERPT

More than 6,000 athletes from 50 countries converged Friday for the opening ceremonies of the inaugural European Games at Olympic Stadium in Azerbaijan's capital, Baku.

Azerbaijani officials are hoping the biggest athletic event in the country's history, two weeks of competition involving 20 sports to be broadcast in 45 countries in Europe and 98 non-European nations, will put the former Soviet republic on the 21st century map. Some of the sports will serve as qualifiers for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

But the games are taking place under a cloud of controversy because of Azerbaijan's record of suppressing democracy and free speech and cracking down on journalists, activists and opponents of the autocratic regime of President Ilham Aliyev.

Last week, Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby indicted six police officers on charges including second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, criminal negligence and police misconduct in the case of Freddie Gray, a black man who died while in police custody last month.

The announcement by the 35-year-old prosecutor at least temporarily restored stability to a city torn apart by rioting, looting and clashes between protesters and police, and it opened the door for legal experts to weigh in on the legitimacy of those charges.
