Reaction To Iran Nuclear Deal Decidedly Mixed In Middle East

A group of jubilant Iranians cheer and spray artificial snow during street celebrations following a landmark nuclear deal, in Tehran, Iran, Tuesday, July 14, 2015. After long, fractious negotiations, world powers and Iran struck an historic deal Tuesday to curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in relief from international sanctions - an agreement aimed at averting the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran and another U.S. military intervention in the Middle East.
