The government of Iran as issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol for help in detaining U.S President Donald Trump and dozens of others it believes carried out the drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad.

Government prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr said on Monday in Tehran that Trump and more than 30 others whom Iran accuses of involvement in the Jan. 3 strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Baghdad face “murder and terrorism charges,” the state-run IRNA news agency reported.

While Trump faces no danger of arrest, the charges underscore the heightened tensions between Iran and the United States since Trump unilaterally withdrew America from Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers.

Alqasimehr did not identify anyone else sought other than Trump, but stressed that Iran would continue to pursue his prosecution even after his presidency ends. Interpol, based in Lyon, France, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
