Tehran's streets were packed with black-clad mourners Monday as a sea of people turned out to pay their respects to Qasem Soleimani, the Iranian general killed by a US drone strike in Baghdad last week. The mourners clutched photographs of Soleimani, a revered and powerful figure who headed the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps elite Quds Force and led Iran's overseas operations. Many of those on the streets of the Iranian capital was visibly upset and angry; others shouted "down with the USA" and "death to the USA." Iranian state television said millions of people attended, although this figure has yet to be verified. Soleimani's body was later taken to a ceremony in the holy city of Qom, ahead of a burial in his hometown of Kerman.
