TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran has issued an arrest warrant and asked Interpol for help in detaining President Donald Trump and dozens of others it believes carried out the U.S. drone strike that killed a top Iranian general in Baghdad early this year.  

That's according to a prosecutor in Tehran who was quoted by the state-run IRNA news agency on Monday.  

The prosecutor said Iran had asked Interpol to issue a "red notice" for Trump and over 30 others.

The move is unlikely to lead to any action and Trump faces no danger of arrest.  

A U.S. official dismissed it as a "propaganda stunt" that "makes the Iranians look foolish."
