Body of Iranian military commander killed in Iraq in U.S. military strike returned to Iran
Sunday, 5 January 2020 The body of Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in Iraq in a U.S. military strike, was returned to Iran on Sunday, the official IRIB news agency reported.
U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said on Tuesday it was "more than fair to say" the attack that Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani was said to be planning was to be executed in days rather than weeks.
Iran has issued an arrest warrant for U.S. President Donald Trump and 35 others over the killing of top general Qassem Soleimani and has asked Interpol for help, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said on Monday, according to the Fars news agency. Edward Baran reports.
On Wednesday U.S. President Donald Trump vetoed the Iran war powers resolution, which would have limited the president's ability to wage war against Iran as he wages a campaign of maximum pressure against the country. Gloria Tso reports.
