TEHRAN, Iran (AP) – Iran has issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol for help in detaining President Donald Trump and dozens of others it believes carried out the U.S. drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad early this year.

That’s according to a prosecutor in Tehran who was quoted by the state-run IRNA news agency on Monday.

The prosecutor said Iran had asked Interpol to issue a “red notice” for Trump and 35 others.

Interpol later said it wouldn’t consider Iran’s request, meaning Trump faces no danger of arrest.

A U.S. official also dismissed it as a “propaganda stunt” that “makes the Iranians look foolish.”
