Iran launches rocket into space as nuclear talks continue

Iran has launched a satellite carrier rocket bearing three research devices into space, according to state media, as difficult negotiations over its tattered nuclear deal with world powers continue in Vienna.

The reports on Thursday did not say when the launch was conducted, nor what devices the carrier brought with it.

A new round of negotiations began in Vienna on Monday in a fresh push to make headway on reviving the 2015 deal.

Diplomats have repeatedly raised the alarm that time is running out to restore the accord.
