The death of Iran’s military leader Qasem Soleimani has attracted thousands of people, who have express their sympathy by mourning the top general in the Iran capital of Tehran.

The angry people have not only gathered to mourn, but to also express their grief, not minding the number of hours they have spent.

According to a reliable source, these past few days, there have also been furious anti-US protests, both in Iran and the Iraq capital of Baghdad.

Getting more updates about the event is CNN correspondent Frederik Pleitgen, who is in Tehran.

He said, “They want what they call hard revenge,”

“I don’t know if you can hear the chants coming from behind me — a lot of them say, ‘Down with the USA,’ also ‘Death to the USA.'”

Speaking further, Pleitgen  said, “As they keep pointing out, he’s one of the people that fought against ISIS.

They believe that he was someone that made this country safer. Of course, the international reputation that he has is very different, but for these folks here he is no less than a hero.”
