Iran Issues Arrest Warrant For President Trump, Asks Interpol For Help
Iranian prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said his nation has issued an arrest warrant for President Donald Trump, asking Interpol for help in detaining US President, as well as others it believes carried out the drone strike that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad, according to reports.
Soleimani who was a designated terrorist by the United States, was killed in a January, 3 attack in Iraq. He was wanted for the planning and death of hundreds of Americans and thousands of people all over the world. Trump said he ordered the U.S. drone strike that killed Soleimani, who was the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ elite Quds Force. He, along with other Iranian, military officials were killed at the Baghdad International Airport. At the time, Soleimani was planning an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.
White House officials could not be immediately reached for comment.
