Iran issues arrest warrant for Trump over killing of top general

"Thirty-six individuals who cooperated, collaborated, and participated in the assassination of Hajj Qassem, including political and military authorities of the US and other countries, have been identified", Alqasi-Mehr said, according to the domestic ISNA news outlet.

Mr Al Qasi Mehr said Mr Trump was responsible for the "terrorist act" and topped the list of those responsible.

Gen. Qassem Soleimani and his comrades were assassinated in Baghdad International Airport on January 3, 2020 at the behest of the US President Donald Trump.

He said Iran had asked Interpol to issue a "red notice" for President Trump and the other individuals the Islamic Republic accuses of taking part in the killing of Soleimani.
