Iraqi Court Issues Arrest Warrant for Trump over Killing of Top Militia Chief

HeadlineJan 08, 2021

An Iraqi court has issued an arrest warrant for President Trump for killing militia chief Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis in the same targeted drone strike that killed top Iranian General Qassem Soleimani just over one year ago. The strike on the Baghdad airport was ordered by Trump, who later said it had taken out “two [men] for the price of one.” Earlier this week, Iran requested Interpol arrest Trump and other U.S. officials for Soleimani’s assasination.
