Iran has issued a warrant for arresting US President Donald Trump and 35 others for the murder of General Qassem Soleimani and asking Interpol for help, Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasi said on Monday, the Fars news agency said.
The United States killed Soleimani, leader of the Quds Force of the Revolutionary Guard, on January 3 in a drone attack in Iraq. Washington accused Soleimani of furthering attacks by Iranian militias on US forces in the region.
Alqasimehr said the arrest warrants were issued for murder and terrorist acts. He said Iran asked Interpol to send a "red message" to Trump and the other people accused by the Islamic Republic of being involved in the murder of Soleimani.
Alqasimehr said the group included other U.S. military and civil officials, but provided no further details.
He said Iran would continue to pursue the matter after Trump's term in office expired.
The Soleimani assassination put the United States and Iran on the brink of armed conflict after Iran fired rockets at American targets in Iraq a few days later.
