The remains of Iran’s most powerful general arrived Tuesday in Kerman for his burial following an unprecedented outpouring of grief in a three-day state funeral procession.
Thousands gathered in Iranian city Kerman, the hometown of the slain General Qassem Soleimani, where his final resting place was being prepared.
Soleimani’s remains and those of the others killed in last week’s US airstrike were brought to a central square in Kerman, a desert city surrounded by mountains where he will be buried later on Tuesday.
