P5+1 European Union officials and Iranian officials wait for the start of a meeting on Iran's nuclear program at the Beau Rivage Palace Hotel March 30, 2015 in LausanneForeign ministers from Iran and six world powers as well as the European Union's foreign policy chief began Monday crunch nuclear talks in Switzerland, an AFP reporter said. The global powers are seeking to slot into place the last pieces of a complex puzzle to curtail Tehran's nuclear programme as diplomats said tentative agreement on some parts had been reached. US Secretary of State John Kerry is leading the team of six world powers -- who hope an end to more than a decade of nuclear tensions with Iran may be in sight -- for their first full plenary session of the latest round of talks. While diplomats said some key points appeared to have been resolved to ensure Iran cannot make a covert dash for a nuclear bomb, they cautioned that the outlines of a political understanding were not yet fully agreed.

A flooded street in Srinagar, on March 29, 2015 in Indian Kashmir, where at least 10 people are missing after heavy rainfall caused mudslidesAt least 10 people have been buried by mudslides and hundreds more have had to flee their homes after heavy rain triggered flooding in Indian Kashmir on Monday, police said. Mudslides buried at least four houses in Chadoora, the worst hit area of the Himalayan region where hundreds were killed in devastating floods last September. A rescue operation is under way," Javid Mujtaba Gillani, inspector general of police for the region, told AFP. Police said 237 families had been evacuated, most of them from Chadoora, around 15 kilometres (10 miles) west of the main city of Srinagar.
