Iran issues arrest warrant for Trump over Soleimani killing

The US killed General Soleimani, who oversaw the Revolutionary Guard Corps's expeditionary Quds Force, and others in the January attack near Baghdad International Airport.

"It was possible to identify 36 persons who participated in preparations for and were involved in the assassination of Qasem Soleimani, among them political and military figures from the United States and other countries", Ali Alqasi-Mehr, Tehran's prosecutor-general, said in a statement on Monday.

The charges include "murder" and committing a "terrorist act" said the prosecutor who added that "President Donald Trump is at the top of the list, and his prosecution will be pursued even after his term is over".

Washington blamed Soleimani for masterminding attacks by Iran-aligned militias on USA forces in the region.

5 states reported their highest number of coronavirus cases in one day
Sunday's tally comes just one day after the state set a daily record for new cases with 9,585 infections. It marked the third day in a row that the state had seen more than 8,500 cases.

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

Trump had tweeted out a picture of the United States flag without any explanation, as the pre-dawn developments marked the most major escalation yet in a feared proxy war between Iran and the U.S. on Iraqi soil. If approved, Interpol would require law enforcement agencies in other countries to facilitate the search for and arrest of the requested suspects.

Red Notices are issued for fugitives wanted either for prosecution or to serve a sentence.

Interpol, based in Lyon, France, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
