Iran issues arrest warrant for Trump over Soleimani‘s killing

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Iran has issued an arrest warrant for US President Donald Trump over the killing of Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Islamic Revolution Guard Corps (IRGC).

CNN is reporting that Iran asked Interpol for help in detaining Trump and 35 others in relation to the death of Qasem Soleimani, a top Iranian general.

The US president is said to be top of the list of suspects targeted over the killing, all of whom will face “murder and terrorism charges.”

Soleimani was killed in January in an air strike by US forces on the orders of Trump.

Ali Alqasimehr, Tehran prosecutor, was quoted as saying Iran requested a “red notice” be put out for Trump and the others, the highest-level notice issued by Interpol.

Under a red notice, local authorities make the arrests on behalf of the country that requested it.

The US president had described the late general as a threat to Americans, saying he was plotting “imminent and sinister” attacks against US citizens before he was killed in Baghdad, Iraqi capital.

“Soleimani was plotting imminent and sinister attacks on American diplomats and military personnel, but we caught him in the act and terminated him,” Trump had said at a press conference.

After his death, Iran vowed “harsh revenge”. Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the US made a “grave mistake” in killing the top general and will suffer consequences for years to come.
