Morsi was separated from other defendants for the start of a new trial Tuesday over charges from prison breaks during the country's 2011 revolution. (AP Photo/Egyptian State TV)CAIRO (AP) The second court appearance for ousted President Mohammed Morsi was very different from his first: He wore a white prison uniform Tuesday instead of a trim dark suit.

Netanyahu: interim deal set Iran’s nuclear drive back by 6 weeks

By Dan Williams TEL AVIV (Reuters) – An international deal capping Iran’s nuclear work set the program back by just six weeks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday, accusing Tehran of using the hiatus to hone technologies with bomb-making potential. Iran this month began implementing the interim nuclear accord it clinched with world powers in Geneva in November, and which Netanyahu has condemned as a “historic mistake” for easing sanctions on Israel’s arch-foe while letting it retain the infrastructure to make fissile materials. “All told, we assess that the agreement put Iran six weeks further away, no more than that, from the place where it was beforehand,” Netanyahu told a security conference in Tel Aviv. “So the test remains for a permanent deal, if achieved, to prevent Iran from achieving a nuclear capability altogether,” he said, alluding to further planned international talks with Iran aimed at a fuller agreement on the disputed nuclear program.
