The latest on the U.N. climate conference outside Paris (all times local):

7:25 a.m.

A French official says a new, possibly final draft of a landmark global deal to fight climate change has been completed after late-night negotiations and will be presented to world negotiators outside Paris within hours.

The official said the text is being translated into other languages before being presented at a special meeting at the Paris climate talks at 11:30 a.m. (1030 GMT). The official, who was not authorized to be publicly named in discussing the negotiations, would not elaborate on the contents of the draft.

Negotiators emerged from a late-night meeting with French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius with signs that a deal was getting close.

The last draft accord, released Thursday night, did not resolve several key issues, including how rich and developing countries would share the burden in fighting global warming.
