US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo posted a video on Twitter on Thursday he said showed Iraqis "dancing in the street" over the killing of top Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani by the US.
"Iraqis - Iraqis - dancing in the street for freedom; thankful that General Soleimani is no more," Pompeo wrote, alongside footage of scores of people running along a road waving what appeared to be Iraqi flags and other banners.
The United States announced earlier that it had killed the commander of the Islamic republic's Quds Force in a strike on Baghdad's international airport on Friday.
