Reports say five "nuclear engineers" have been assassinated by unknown assailants near a research center in the north part of the Syrian capital.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed an interim agreement reached regarding Iran's nuclear programme and urged the Governments concerned to do everything possible to continue negotiations.
