U.N. climate conference extends Kyoto Protocol

DURBAN (Reuters) - A U.N. conference on climate change approved on Sunday a measure to extend the Kyoto Protocol, which binds some developed countries to legally binding cuts of greenhouse gas emissions.

The timeline of the next commitment period is expected to be decided next year. The first commitment period also expires next year.
