Iran Nuclear Deal Is Reached After Long Negotiation.

VIENNA — Iran and a group of six nations led by the United States have agreed to a historic accord to significantly limit Tehran’s nuclear ability for more than a decade in return for lifting international oil and financial sanctions against Iran, a senior Western diplomat involved in the negotiations said on Tuesday.

The deal culminates 20 months of negotiations on a deal that President Obama had long sought as the biggest diplomatic achievement of his presidency.

A formal announcement of the agreement was expected later on Tuesday, when foreign ministers from Iran and the six nations it has been negotiating with will meet at a United Nations complex here in Vienna. Catherine Ray, a spokeswoman for the European Union, said a final plenary meeting of the six nations — the United States, Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia — will take place at 10:30 a.m. in Vienna, followed by a news conference, but she provided no further details.

Diplomats have declined to provide details until Secretary of State John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, speak at that event. Mr. Obama is expected to make a public statement in Washington, beginning a long process to sell the deal to Congress and the American public.

Hillary Clinton Raises Record $45 Million in First Quarter of Campaign

Clinton attended dozens of high-dollar fundraisers, though 91% of the donations came from people who gave $100 or less.

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign raised at least $45 million during its first quarter, her campaign told Bloomberg on Wednesday.

Clinton's haul from her campaign's launch in mid-April through June 30 is a record for primary money raised in a candidate's first quarter. President Barack Obama held the previous record for a campaign's first quarter, raising $41.9 million after launching his re-election bid.

The Democratic frontrunner appeared dozens of high-dollar fundraisers–many in New York, several in California, plus a smattering smaller cities like St. Louis, Austin and Albuquerque–where attendees were often asked to give the primary-season maximum $2,700 or to raise at least $27,000.

The campaign, though, is emphasizing a number that it sees a sign of grassroots support: 91 percent of the donations were of $100 or less. In a handwritten note posted on Twitter just after the campaign announced the top-line numbers, Clinton expressed her appreciation. "Thank you so much for being part of this campaign. I’m grateful for all you’ve done and excited for what comes next," she wrote. "When the road ahead is tough, you need the best people by your side. That’s why I’m thankful for you."
