Ukraine, rebels argue over wreck, Europeans give Putin "last chance"

HRABOVE/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - Ukraine accused Russia and pro-Moscow rebels on Saturday of destroying evidence to cover up their guilt in the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner that has accelerated a showdown between the Kremlin and Western powers. As militants kept international monitors away from wreckage and scores of bodies festered for a third day, Russian President Vladimir Putin urged the rebels to cooperate and insisted that a U.N.-mandated investigation must not leap to conclusions. Moscow denies involvement and has pointed a finger at Kiev's military #content #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #aut #typeof-registered #cnt

Pro-Kremlin media pushes Putin's case over downed Malaysian plane

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Some said Ukrainian jet fighters tailed the doomed Malaysia Airlines flight MH-17; others speculated that Kiev's forces mistook it for Vladimir Putin's Russian presidential jet. But while Russia's pro-Kremlin media offered varying accounts of how the Boeing 777 may have been brought down, they agreed on who was responsible: the Ukrainian government. For Moscow, Kiev and pro-Russian separatist rebels alike, the information war to sway public opinion over who is to blame for Thursday's disaster will be crucial to how the crisis in eastern Ukraine develops #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #cookie #values #rco #rch #typeof-registered #cnt

Iran, powers seek to agree terms for extending nuclear talks - diplomats

VIENNA (Reuters) - Iran and six world powers are working to finalise the terms of a likely extension in negotiations over Tehran's nuclear programme beyond a July 20 deadline and an announcement may come as early as Friday, Western diplomats said. Officials from both sides on Tuesday said it appeared the talks would not yield a breakthrough by the self-imposed target date after two weeks of efforts failed to bridge gaps in positions over a deal intended to end a decade-long dispute. Several diplomats close to the negotiations in Vienna suggested they expected them to resume in September. #Yahoo! #content #wcnts #wcntn #typeof-social #undefined #values #aut #rch #typeof-registered #cnt
