Stampede in Iran During Soleimani’s Funeral Kills at Least 56
The stampede occurred during the funeral procession for Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani in his hometown Kerman.
Iranian state TV also reported at least 213 injuries as a result of the stampede.
More than a million people attended a similar procession on Monday in Tehran, the Iranian capital.
Soleimani was killed in a U.S. drone strike as his convoy was leaving the Baghdad airport in Iraq.
The U.S. considered Soleimani a terrorist and war criminal.
His death has rapidly increased tensions between the U.S. and Iran.
The Iranian parliament approved a bill that designated the U.S. Pentagon and military as terrorist organizations.
According to a HuffPost-YouGov survey, 43% of Americans approve of Trump’s decision on the airstrike that killed Soleimani.
