Iranians react as sanctions suspended

Iran's nuclear negotiators hailed as "Ambassadors of Peace" as they return home with a deal that lifts some sanctions

    A new deal between Iran and world powers is one many hope will be an important step in resolving a decade-old standoff.

    Hundreds of cheering supporters greeted Iran's nuclear negotiators calling them "Ambassadors of Peace" as they arrived back in Tehran late on Sunday night.

    Tehran has agreed to a six-month pause of its nuclear ambitions while diplomats continued talks.

    The new deal will ease about $7bn of the economic sanctions that have been crippling the Islamic Republic. 

    For some, the sanctions have been a part of daily life for decades, and lifting them is seen as too little too late from the US.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
