The U.N. climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland, ended Saturday when almost 200 nations accepted a compromise deal aimed at keeping a key global warming target alive.

We get more from AP's Jennifer King.

After two weeks of talks, envoys at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, accepted a compromise agreement.

It was aimed at keeping alive the international goal to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius or 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit.

Nation after nation complained that the deal isn't enough to fend off flooding, heat, drought and weather disasters that endanger millions, but in the end, said it provides some progress, if not success.

U.S. special climate envoy John Kerry encouraged delegates to accept the imperfect proposal.

"You can't let the perfect be the enemy of the good."

In the last-minute intervention, India water down the language on cutting emissions from coal.

Indian Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav: "... developing countries have a right to their fair share of the global carbon budget and are entitled to the responsible use of fossil fuels."

The Glasgow Climate Pact includes some financial incentives for poorer nations and solves a long-standing problem to pave the way for carbon trading.

Officials, relatives and a media watchdog in Afghanistan confirmed Saturday that a suspected bomb blast on a minibus in Kabul had killed a well-known journalist and injured several people.

The slain journalist was identified as Hameed Saighani, who worked for the mainstream Ariana television network.

The violence happened near a Taliban checkpoint in the Afghan capital's western area dominated by members of the minority Shiite Hazara community.

There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attack, but Afghan Hazara have for years been the target of deadly violence by the regional Islamic State affiliate.
