Obama delivers remarks at the Memorial Day observance at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VirginiaBy Patricia Zengerle and Roberta Rampton WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama warned on Friday that surveillance powers used to prevent attacks on Americans could lapse at midnight on Sunday unless "a handful of senators" stop standing in the way of reform legislation. Obama said he had told Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other senators that he expects them to act swiftly on a bill passed by the House of Representatives that would renew certain powers and reform the bulk collection of telephone data. "I don't want us to be in a situation in which for a certain period of time, those authorities go away and suddenly we're dark and heaven forbid we've got a problem," Obama told reporters in the Oval Office.

Iranians burn Israeli and American flags during a demonstration in Tehran on May 29, 2015, following weekly Friday prayers, to call on the Iranian government to reject the nuclear agreement with world powersUS top diplomat John Kerry and his Iranian counterpart will Saturday launch a new high-stakes diplomatic drive to nail down an unprecedented nuclear deal as they hurtle towards a deadline just one month away. US officials warned the weeks leading to June 30 would be intense, vowing to "keep the pressure on" to force the Iranians and everyone at the table to make the "tough decisions" needed to end a 12-year standoff and put a nuclear bomb beyond Iran's reach. Sealing a long-elusive deal with the Islamic republic could prove President Barack Obama's lasting foreign policy achievement.
