Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer: Home demolitions "do serve as a deterrent"

Israel has ramped up security after two Palestinians wielding a gun and butcher knives killed five people, three of them Americans, at a synagogue.

Officials have vowed to demolish the homes of the two attackers. Officials did demolish the home of another Palestinian who killed two people last month when he drove his car into a crowd of people standing at Jerusalem train station.

The Associated Press found the attacker's grandmother sitting in the rubble today. She told them she was proud of her grandson's actions, saying "no one should feel sorry for us, for our demolished home."

State Department: Iran nuclear talks are not about trust

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sent a dire warning to the United States Monday, saying Iran's "terrorist" regime must not be allowed to get a nuclear bomb.

"I call on the P5+1 countries - don't rush into a deal that would let Iran rush to the bomb," Netanyahu said in a statement.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry just ended two days of talks over Iran's nuclear program with the country's foreign minister.

State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki is OutFront.

Inside the site of the the 1979 Iran hostage crisis

CNN has a rare look inside the former U.S. embassy in Iran where dozens of American diplomats were held and tortured by Iranians for 14 months in 1979.

Many may remember it from the Hollywood hit, Argo.

Today, the embassy is an anti-American museum, but it looks almost exactly like it did 34 years ago.

CNN's Jim Sciutto has the exclusive footage.
