Iran has issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol for help in detaining US President Donald Trump and dozens of others over the drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad.

Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said that Trump and more than 30 others who Iran accuses of involvement in the January 3 strike that killed General Qassem Soleimani face “murder and terrorism charges”.

Apart from Trump’s name, Alqasimehr did not identify the other suspects. He stressed that Iran would continue to pursue Trump’s prosecution even after his presidency ends.

Recall that in January, the US killed General Soleimani, who oversaw the Revolutionary Guard’s expeditionary Quds Force, and others in an air strike near Baghdad International Airport.

The air strike came after months of incidents raising tensions between the two countries.

Following Soleimani’s murder, Iran retaliated with a ballistic missile strike targeting American troops in Iraq.
