Boris Johnson has warned Iran not to attempt "retaliation or reprisals" against America following the assassination of its top general. In his first intervention in the crisis, the Prime Minister said he would be speaking to "all sides" to urge calm and de-escalation. It came as three rockets landed near the US embassy in Baghdad last night. Earlier, Iran warned of "severe revenge" for the killing of Qassim Soleimani. Meanwhile, Iraq's parliament passed a bill calling for the expulsion of all foreign forces from the country. Read Finbar Anderson's dispatch as hundreds of thousands of Iranians poured onto the streets to mourn Gen Soleimani.
