Iranian politician offers ‘$3m to whoever kills Trump’

An Iranian politician is reportedly offering a $3m “award” for “whoever kills Trump”.

According to ISNA, Iran’s semi-official news agency, Ahmad Hamzeh said: “On behalf of people of Kerman province, we will pay $3m award in cash to whoever kills Trump.”

Kerman is the hometown of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, who was killed in a US drone strike on 3 January in Iraq.

Hamzeh did not elaborate on whether it was a decision made by clerical rulers to threaten Donald Trump, who is currently in Switzerland to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Another Iranian representative has been reported as saying the country would be protected from threats if it had nuclear weapons.
