Fifty people have been killed and more than 200 injured in a stampede as Iranians gathered for the burial of a leading commander killed in a US drone strike.
The deaths in Qasem Soleimani’s hometown of Kerman led to his interment being delayed.
Millions are already estimated to have packed the streets for a series of funeral processions in Iran.
Soleimani’s killing has raised fears of a conflict between the US and Iran.
The head of the Quds force was tasked with defending and projecting Iranian interests abroad, and was hailed as a hero in his home country.
