TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran's President says the nuclear deal with six world powers "opened new windows for engagement with the world." Hassan Rouhani (hah-SAHN' roh-HAH'-nee) says the official implementation Saturday left everyone but the most radical elements satisfied. Speaking in parliament, he singled out detractors as "Zionists, warmongers, sowers of discord among Islamic nations and extremists in the U.S." The rest are happy."

VIENNA (AP) — Four Americans and seven Iranians are being freed in a prisoner swap. Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, former U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati, pastor Saeed Abedini and Nosratollah Khosravi-Roodsari, whose name had not been previously made public, were freed from custody. A fifth American was released separately. The U.S. will pardon or drop charges against seven Iranians — six of whom are dual U.S.-Iranian citizens — accused or convicted of violating U.S. sanctions.

NEW YORK (AP) — An attack by al-Qaida fighters on a luxury hotel and cafe in Burkina Faso's capital left an American missionary dead.

At least 28 people from 18 countries died in the attack.

HUNTINGBURG, Ind. (AP) — Nine more Indiana turkey farms have been hit with bird flu. They're all near the location where authorities first confirmed a strain different from the one that ravaged the U.S. poultry industry last summer. Indiana authorities say farmers had begun euthanizing turkeys at the new farms even before getting final results of whether the birds were infected with the H7N8 strain.
