Iran offers $80million bounty for Donald Trump’s head after death of general
An $80million bounty has been placed on Donald Trump’s head in Iran in the wake of General Qasem Soleimani’s assassination.
During the televised funeral, official state broadcasters said one US dollar would be tabled for every Iranian in the country, with the cash going to whoever killed the US President.
“Iran has 80 million inhabitants. Based on the Iranian population, we want to raise $80million (£61million) which is a reward for those who get close to the head of President Trump,” it was announced, according to en24.
Tehran vowed revenge at the heart of the US after the Quds Force general was killed by a Reaper drone last Friday at Baghdad airport.
The attack took long-running hostilities between Washington and Tehran into uncharted territory and raised the spectre of wider conflict in the Middle East.
Earlier today Iranian MP Abolfazl Aboutorabi threatened to attack the heart of American politics.
