As Iran and six major powers sit down for the fifth straight day of nuclear talks in Switzerland, officials say possible compromises to break an impasse are on the table. But Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says the details of the possible deal -- are even worse than Israel expected. (SOUNDBITE) (Hebrew) ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER, BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, SAYING: "I expressed our deep concern towards this deal emerging with Iran in the nuclear talks, this deal as it appears to be emerging bears out all of our fears, and even more than that." Officials told Reuters that Tehran indicated a willingness to accept fewer than 6,000 nuclear centrifuges and to send most of its enriched uranium stockpiles for storage in Russia. Iranian officials had originally insisted on keeping some 10,000 centrifuges in operation. Washington indicated in November it could accept around 6,000. An Israeli strategic official seeking to lobby world powers against an Iran nuclear deal says Israel - which is not a party to the talks - is fighting an "uphill battle."
