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

Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr mentioned Trump and much more than 30 other folks whom Iran accuses of involvement in the January three strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad deal with "murder and terrorism charges", the point out-operate IRNA information company claimed.

Although Trump faces no danger in being apprehended, the Iranian arrest warrant exemplified the tension between Tehran and Washington since the latter withdrew in May 2018 from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

Responding to the prosecutor's comments, the US senior diplomat for Iran, Brian Hook, dismissed Alqassimehr's move as a "propaganda stunt".

The prosecutor general explained that Trump is at the top of the list and he'll be facing prosecution even after his term as president comes to an end.

Local authorities generally make the arrests on behalf of the country that requests it.
