56 killed in stampede at Soleimani funeral

How well organized are the Iranians? This is strange but true. According to Iranian State TV, after President Trump assassinated the Revolutionary Guard General Qassem Soleimani , over a million Iranians flocked to his funeral procession and a stampede erupted, which led to the death of 56 people and more than 200 others were injured. The stampede took place in Kerman, the home town of the late Soleimani.

Pirhossein Koulivand, head of Iran’s emergency medical services said: “Unfortunately as a result of the stampede, some of our compatriots have been injured and some have been killed during the funeral processions.”

Gen Soleimani’s burial was delayed due to concerns about the massive crowd but no new time has been given as at the time of this report.
