UN climate talks that were supposed to end Friday were extended by another day as negotiators seek to break a deadlock over creating a fund for nations hard hit by global warming impacts.

"Today we need to shift gears again, time is not on our side," Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry, who chairs the COP27 talks, told delegates, adding: "I remain committed to bringing this conference to a close tomorrow in an orderly manner."
