- The country accused the US president of terrorism
- Going further, Iran said it will continue to pursue his arrest even after his term in office
Iran has responded to the killing of its top general by issuing an arrest warrant for the US president, Donald Trump.
The Islamic country also solicited the help of Interpol in catching the United States president and dozens of others.
Iran accused them of killing a top general in Baghdad.
According to Tehran prosecutor, Ali Alqasimehr, Trump, alongside more than 30 others were involved in the January 3 attack that killed General Qassem Soleimani.
They consequently face "murder and terrorism charges," the semi-official ISNA news agency reported.
Aljazeera reports that Alqasimehr did not identify anyone else sought other than Trump.
Alqasimehr, however, said Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends.
He was also quoted to have said that Iran had requested a "red notice" be put out for Trump and the others. This is said to be the highest-level notice issued by Interpol.
Interpol has not yet notified its members of any action to arrest Trump.
