Qassem Soleimani killing: Could Iran and US go to war?

The killing of General Qassem Soleimani, who led the elite Quds Force in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), was ordered by US President Donald Trump.

A US air raid hit his convoy near Baghdad International Airport on Friday.

The assassination marks a dangerous escalation in US-Iran tensions.

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warned there would be “harsh revenge”.

A senior Iraqi official also died in the attack, and all Americans have now been advised to leave Iraq because of the threat of reprisal attacks.
