Filipinos struggle to leave

Iran and U.S. blame each

Thousands search
for flights to escape

TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP).
- Thousands of typhoon survi-

on Tuesday seeking a flight out,
but only a few hundred made it,

water and littered with countless
Four days after Typhoon Hai-
yan struck the eastern Philip-

has made to affected communi-

storm killed 10,000 or more
across a vast swath of the coun-

or food.
Tacloban, a city of about
220,000 people on Leyte island,

Just after dawn Tuesday,
two Philippine Air Force C-130s
arrived at its destroyed airport
along with several commercial
and private flights. More than
3,000 people who camped out at
the building surged onto the tar-
mac past a broken iron fence to
get on the aircraft. Just a dozen
soldiers and several police held
them back.
Mothers raised their babies
high above their heads in the
rain, in hopes of being priori-
tized. One lady in her thirties lay
on a stretcher, shaking uncon-
trollably. Only a small number
managed to board.
"I was pleading with the sol-
diers. I was kneeling and begging
because I have diabetes," said
Helen Cordial, whose house was

They are stone hearted."
Most residents spent Monday
night under pouring rain wher-
ever they could - in the ruins
of destroyed houses, in the open
along roadsides and shredded
trees. Some slept under tents
brought in by the government or
relief groups.
Local doctors said they were
desperate for medicines. Beside
the ruined airport tower, at
a small makeshift clinic with
shattered windows, army and

Progress made
despite failure to
reach agreement
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates
(AP) - Iran and the United States
on Monday blamed each other for
the failure to reach agreement
on a deal to limit Iran's uranium
enrichment in exchange for an
easing of Western sanctions.
In spite of the accusations,
there was some diplomatic prog-
ress as Iran promised to offer
more information and expanded
access to U.N. nuclear inspectors
- including more openings at a
planned reactor and uranium site.
U.S. Secretary of State John
Kerry said Iranian envoys had
backed away from a wider deal
this weekend seeking to ease
Western concerns that Tehran
could one day develop atomic
Iran's foreign minister,
Mohammad Javad Zarif, coun-
tered by criticizing Kerry's
remarks, telling an Iranian TV
talk show that the American's
"conflicting statements" dam-
aged confidence in the process,
adding that "considerable prog-
ress was made" in Geneva.
The flurry of announcements
and comments showed both the
complexities and urgency in try-
ing to move ahead on an accord
between Iran and world powers
after the talks in Geneva failed to
produce a deal.
With negotiators set to resume
next week, Iranian officials pro-
moted a separate pact reached
with the U.N. nuclear chief Yuki-
ya Amano as a "roadmap" for
greater cooperation andtranspar-
ency, which could'move the talks
ahead. But the plans do not men-
tion some of the sites most sought
by U.N. teams to probe suspicions
of nuclear-related work, notably
the Parchin military facility out-
side Tehran.
"It's an important step for-
ward, but by no means the end
of the process," Amano told The
Associated Press in Tehran.

"There is still much work to be
Western leaders, meanwhile,
were keen to display a unified
front after reports that France
had broken ranks in Geneva and
demanded more concessionsfrom
Iran on enrichment levels and an
under-construction heavy water
reactor that produced a greater
amount of plutonium byproduct,
which could be used in eventual
weapons production. Kerry said
it was Iran that put the brakes on
reaching a first-phase agreement,
but gave no details on the Iranian
concerns and suggested it was
only a matter of time before a for-
mula is found.
"There was unity but Iran
couldn't take it," Kerry said dur-
ingastop inAbuDhabi. He added:
"The French signed off on it, we
signed off on it."
Kerry told the BBC on Monday
that negotiators had been "very,
very close ... extremely close" to
reachinga deal with Iran.
"I think we were separated by
four or five different formulations
of a particular concept," he said.
In the BBC interview, Kerry
acknowledged "the French have
been more vocal about one thing
or another." But he said, "the fact
is that we had a unity on Saturday
in a proposal put in front of the
Iranians. But because of some the
changes they felt they had to go
back and change it."
Later Monday, Zarif criticized
Kerry's remarks that blamed Iran
for lack of a deal when asked about,
them on an Iranian TV talk show.
"Conflicting statements harm
the credibility of the one who
keeps changing positions and
damages confidence. The goal
of dialogue is to reduce the lack
of trust. Conflicting talk doesn't
give credit to the person saying
it," Zarif said.
He said "considerable prog-
ress" was made during three days
of talks in Geneva but claimed
that most of the hours were spent
with the U.S., Russia, China, Brit-
ain, France and Germany trying
"to resolve differences among
themselves." He said he's still

hopeful a deal will be reached,
but insisted any agreement must
include the lifting of all Western
sanctions against Iran.
British Foreign'Secretary Wil-
liam Haguesaid the world powers
presented a united front to Iran
at the weekend talks that failed
to reach an accord, and although
"some gaps" remained between
parties at the talks, "most ofthose
gaps are narrow."
In Jerusalem, Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu
has acknowledged that an over-
all deal is likely between Iran
and world powers, which would
undercut Israeli threats to launch
military action against Iranian
nuclear sites. Yet he hailed the
delay as a chance to "achieve a
much better deal."
"The target date for this deal is
the date on which agood deal will
be achieved that will deny Iran a
military nuclear capability," he
told Israel's parliament Monday.
For Netanyahu and his backers,
however, hopes have all but evap-
orated that Iran can be forced by
negotiators to completely end its
ability to make nuclear fuel. It's
now unclear what type of deal
would satisfy Israel, which sees a
nuclear-armed Iran as a threat to
its existence.
Iran has denied it seeks nucle-
ar arms and insists its only seeks
reactors for energy and medical
applications. Iranian officials
portrayed the expanded U.N.
access as further sign it seeks to
work with the West.
Under the plans, announced
at a joint news conference, Iran
would allow inspectors a first-
time visit of its key Gachin ura-
nium mine on the Gulf coast and
give broader access to the heavy
water facility being built in the
central city of Arak. Heavy water
reactors use a different type
of coolant to produce a greater
amount of plutonium byprod-
uct than conventional reac-
tors. Inspectors from the U.N.'s
International Atomic Energy
Agency have already visited the
reactor site but seek more exten-
sive examinations.
