Iran and the United States held a second day of talks Monday in Oman about a long hoped for nuclear deal, with key differences threatening to scupper a final agreement.With a November 24 deadline hanging over the negotiations, US Secretary of State John Kerry and Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif are laying out their nations' competing demands, but with no signs of a breakthrough. Kerry and Zarif's talks resumed just before 11.30 am (0730 GMT).Iran and the US have said more time is not on the agenda, but the talks have already been extended once -- when a July 20 deadline was missed.If talks go sour in the coming weeks it is thought the US Congress may respond with fresh sanctions on Iran.
